The City of Cape Town has deployed the South African
Police Service to the CBD as the
South African Municipal Workers Union will be marching today.
Samwu members have been on strike
since Monday following what it deems unresolved grievances with the City
including the unfair dismissal of its members and the way they have been
treated by the City.
City’s mayoral committee member for
corporate services, Councillor Xanthea Limberg said Samwu leadership agreed to
abide by the picketing rules but thus far their members have chosen to
transgress these rules and the city strongly condemns the violence displayed by
Samwu since the strike begun and all acts of vandalism and acts of intimidation
will be handled and the city will be investigating it.
Limberg said we would like to urge
members of the public to immediately report any acts of intimidation, violence
and vandalism to the South African Police Services.
