Pikitup expects service interruptions due to illegal strike
The waste management company says the strike will affect refuse collection in all regions of JHB.
JOHANNESBURG – Pikitup says its services will be disrupted today due to an illegal strike by workers affiliated to the South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu).
The waste management company says the strike will affect refuse collection in all regions of the city.
It's not yet clear why the employees have downed tools.
Pikitup’s Pansy Oyedele says they haven't received any correspondence from the union.
“But we do apologises to residents as well as business owners. And we advise that they keep their bins back in their yards until further notice while we deal with the issue at hand.”
