2009-07-30 00:00

MUNICIPAL strikers are set to march to the legislature and the office of the premier today to deliver memorandums.

The Msunduzi Municipality is still using private contractors for refuse removal and security has been arranged to ensure the safety of workers who have not joined the strike. Pay points are still operationing and no major incidents have been reported.

The strikers’ unions are still mul­ling a revised wage offer by the SA Local Government Association.

“The problem is that three regions haven’t accepted,” said Johan Koen, general secretary of the Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union.

The SA Municipal Workers’ Union was also continuing internal talks on the offer, which amounts to 13%. — Sapa-WR.
