The South African Municipal Workers Union has rejected the South African Local Government Associations latest wage offer labelling it as ridiculous.

Samwu members are demanding a minimum wage of R7 500 while Salga is insisting on a three year agreement. Salga, which is representing 278 municipalities, has been in negotiations with 230,000 employees affiliated to Samwu since March.

Samwu’s General Secretary Walter Theledi says they are just offering 0.04% on top of the 5.4% they have been offering.

Obviously that didn’t go well with us. Our members are now being reported back to and obviously a solution to go on strike might be taken soon, Theledi added.
