SAMWU Intensifies Mangaung Strike
18 May 2017
The South African Municipal Workers' Union (SAMWU) will be intensifying its strike action at the Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality. The intensification of the strike action follows the arrogance of the employer which have led to todays' Special Local Labor Forum (LLF) collapsing.
When we embarked on this industrial action, we made it clear that we would not be returning to our workstations until all our demands were met. Today's LLF could not agree on anything as the employer was unwilling to negotiate with us in good faith, including the fact that they could not concede where they have erred on issues of law, issues which do not need negotiations but implementation.
Members of the community have therefore been mobilized to join the strike action as issues which have been raised by workers directly affect them. We will soldier on and not retreat until all demands have been met.
