Western Cape Department of
Transport and Public Works has been engaging with the National Union of
Mineworkers to try and avoid a march the union is planning.
The meeting which took place
earlier this week was to discuss grievances and allegations relating to Good
Hope Construction, who were awarded contracts for the construction of a number
of schools by the Department.
Provincial Spokesperson for
the department Al-Ameen Kafaar said to commit to investigate the allegations
made against Good Hope construction by the NUM representatives, but at the same
time we also need to give Good Hope construction an opportunity to respond to
these allegations made by NUM.
Kafaar said afterwards we also
commit ourselves to facilitate an engagement between NUM and Good Hope
Construction to address the issues raised that were raised.
Kafaar added that, this
process still needs to take place before we can embark on any further actions.
