Vodacom Back to Work Tactics

Vodacom in south Africa are experimenting with novel strike breaking tactics . This is the first time I have heard of this tactic being used in the world.
The service provider blocked the strikers' cellphones, citing a "no work, no pay, and no benefits" policy.

CWU spokesperson Mfanafuthi Sithebe said: "Vodacom confirms our long held view that the company has employed reactionary expatriates with no knowledge of the labour laws and the supreme law of the country."
Reactionary Expatriates? Last time, I heard all of Vodacom senior executives were South African.
