Samwu to embark on strike in the Cape metro

The South African Municipal Workers Union in the Cape metro Region will be embarking on a strike action starting on the 4th of May.

Samwu Regional Secretary Mikel Khumalo said this follows the suspension of the strike for ninety days for the City of Cape Town to deal with the grievances of the various depots which they have not resolved until now.

Khumalo said instead of the city engaging with the union on the issues it is threatening to approach the court seeking an urgent interdict to stop the strike action.

Khumalo said it is a challenge that many workers are dismissed and disciplined numbers everyday and some are appealed against the unfairness of their dismissals and yet the city is not granting those appeals.

Khumalo said we have seen the city not filling many of the vacancies that exist within the municipality where the money is being directed towards the EPWP’s so called project, which we believe those jobs are of a permanent nature and the city should fill in those vacancies.
