Samwu suspends CT strike
Municipal workers downed tools at the beginning of last month due to several issues.
CAPE TOWN - The South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) has suspended its strike against the City of Cape Town after reaching an agreement on some employment issues.
Municipal workers had downed tools at the beginning of last month due to issues relating to a lack of transport for workers, alleged racism and victimisation of shop stewards.
The union put the industrial action on hold after the mayor appointed a task team to deal with the problem.
Samwu's Michael Khumalo said the group signed an agreement on Tuesday.
"There is a process that needs to be followed ensuring that we implement that agreement among other things including the issue of the task team composed from delegates from the employers and from Samwu on weekly basis to monitor certain areas of process."
