Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape

I am a student assistant at the University of the Western Cape. I signed a work contract with work-study. The contract stipulated that all payments would be made on the 23rd of each month. This month I did not receive my payment. Other student assistants were paid, I consulted with the work-study office with no promising response of when I would be getting my money. I sent several emails some with no response and some with no clear indication of whether I will be receiving my money or not. I would like to ask what is my legal position? Is there any breach of contract and what can I do?
