They also want to raise concerns over restructuring at the entity, which they fear will lead to job losses.

The government-owned arms manufacturer owes its staff about R90-million in outstanding salaries, dating back to last year.

Denel received a lifeline in the mini-budget last year when Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced it would get R2.9-billion. 

Back in May, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ordered the state-owned arms manufacturer to pay R13.2-million in outstanding salaries to 42 current and former employees.
