COSATU Limpopo Press Release
15 November 2005
The Congress of South African Trade in Limpopo will throw its weight behind the one day strike action by SAMWU members in Thabazimbi local municipality. The one day strike action comes as a result of failure by the council to address grievances of workers which include the privatization of waste removal, nepotism and to investigate the alleged manipulation of the council's tender processes by certain individuals or groups. The municipality has a poor record of service delivery and we will be calling for act ion to correct this situation. Instead of focusing on their core functions, many councilors and officials are engaged in battles for power at the expense of community development. These tendencies can never be tolerated.
It is for that reason that we have mobilized the community of Thabazimbi to a march that will take place on Monday, 14 November 2005 at 9h00.The Federation will further call on the ANC to intervene and assist to resolve the issues at the political level pa rticularly with regards to the attempts to prevent the forensic investigations into the tender processes.
