Samwu: We're not being unreasonable during Pikitup strike
Samwu says it’s waiting patiently for an invitation from Pikitup & the City of Joburg to resume negotiations.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) says it believes it’s being reasonable in its handling of an employee strike at waste management company Pikitup.
The union says it’s waiting patiently for a formal invitation from the company and the City of Johannesburg to resume negotiations.
Workers went on strike earlier this month calling for salary inconsistencies to be addressed and Managing Director Amanda Nair's resignation.
Pikitup says efforts are underway to resume talks with the union and find a solution to the industrial action.
The union’s Paul Tlhabang says Samwu is looking for an amicable solution and wants the company and the city to start playing their part.
“We complied, abide and co-operated with all initiated processes. But now they’re playing the victims by saying Samwu is unreasonable when in fact they’re being unreasonable.”
