The South African Municipal Workers Union has formally declared a wage and salary dispute with the Sedibeng Water Board today.

This follows numerous rounds of unsuccessful negotiations which resulted in no concreate increase for workers.

SAMWU says. It will be approaching the conciliation with the view of finding a solution to the impulse.

SAMWU’s National Bargaining Officer Chumani Gqeke said, should the union not receive a favourable outcome by employers then they will have no choice but to speak the language that the employer knows and understands.

“We believe this increase will not encourage levels of productivity as employees are the backbone of service delivery. To ensure that every household is connected to clean and quality water,” Gqeke said.
