Pikitup not revealing contingency plans over intimidation fears
Pikitup’s Jacky Mashapu says the striking workers will appear before a disciplinary committee in two weeks.
JOHANNESBURG - Pikitup says it can't reveal details around its contingency plans due to intimidation tactics by striking workers against non-striking employees.
Almost 4,000 Pikitup workers went on an unprotected strike last week, over a salary dispute while also demanding the resignation of Managing Director, Amanda Nair.
The waste management company says for security reasons it cannot name the company or individuals involved in the backup plan to clean the city.
Pikitup's Jacky Mashapu says the striking workers will appear before a disciplinary committee in two weeks.
"They have all been charged and will appear before DC from 29-31 March 2016. In the past, the people who were helping us were targeted."
