The South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) has informed the City of Cape Town that its strike action, initially expected to take place this week, will now commence from 28 January 2008.

“Although we did announce that there would be industrial action possibly from today, SAMWU has advised the City that it will only engage in industrial action as from next Monday,” says Charles Cooper of the City of Cape Town.

According to Cooper, SAMWU’s reasons for postponing the strike is that they need more time to organise their members and they need more time to meet with the City.

SAMWU is set to down tools in an effort to show their unhappiness in the restructuring of the city. The union was not available for comment at the time of publication.
