Last Updated on

ASATA would like to share with you the article below, and an interview published and released by Moneyweb in relation to TBCSA’s stance around the reinstatement of UIF TERS.

Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) CEO Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa reiterated the organisation’s calls for the UIF’s COVID-19 Temporary Employer-Employee Relief Scheme (Ters) to be reinstated on Tuesday, saying the industry is on its knees and many more thousands of jobs are on the line.

“The government needs to urgently reinstate UIF Ters benefits for hard-hit workers and businesses in the tourism, hospitality and liquor industries, or we need the extended lockdown alert Level 3 restrictions to be reversed,” he told Moneyweb.

Similar calls have been made by other tourism bodies such as SATSA, FEDHASA, and the Restaurant Association of SA.
