Reports of intimidation as Pikitup strike continues
Employees at Pikitup are still on an unprotected strike over wages & allegations of misconduct against the MD.
JOHANNESBURG – As Pikitup implements its contingency plan for refuse collection around Johannesburg, there are already reports of intimidation of outsourced workers.
Employees at the waste management company are still on an unprotected strike over wages and allegations of misconduct against managing director Amanda Nair.
Pikitup has said it won't reveal details relating to its back up plan, to avoid the intimidation of the company and individuals involved.
But Johannesburg MMC for Environment and Infrastructure Matshidiso Mfikoe says reports of intimidation have been received overnight.
“We got calls that they were being intimidated and that trucks are being shot at. But we will continue. We need to protect the residents of Johannesburg.”
