Municipal workers strike expected tomorrow
Workers affiliated to Samwu in Cape Town are set to down tools over alleged racism at depots and transport.
CAPE TOWN - A municipal workers strike over a range of issues is expected to start in Cape Town on Monday with concerns that refuse removal services will be affected.
Workers affiliated to the South African Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) in the city of Cape Town are set to down tools over alleged racism at depots, transport and the changing of work programmes.
It's understood workers will not be protesting over wage demands
The city's Demetri Qually said, "One of the areas that might be affected is the refuse collection and we're asking our residents to put out their bins as normal but it will probably take longer if it's affected."
