Workers, Haswell in talks today

2008-09-08 00:00

The planned protest by workers employed in the city’s security division ended after two hours yesterday without any major impact on services.

Security officers blocked entrances to city hall and the parking and prevented staff from entering, demanding that municipal manager Rob Haswell address them.

That delayed work at the city hall by about two hours. However, the workers returned to work after reaching an agreement with management.

Haswell and labour representatives agreed to a sitting of a special forum today to discuss the issues raised.

Shop steward, Bhekisisa Zulu, said that the workers have agreed to air their concerns before the labour committee. He confirmed that workers had returned to work.
