The Basic Education Department has been issued with arrest warrants for Gauteng senior members of the South African Democratic Teachers’ Union.
This comes after the Sadtu provincial leadership went ahead with a union meeting during school hours.
Reports said a number of learners in Soweto were dismissed from school early and some could not write their preliminary exams as a result of the meeting.
The Basic Education Department says the meeting went ahead despite a court interdict preventing it from doing so.
