Durban - After a year of ongoing strikes by the eThekwini metro police, the city has made more than 1 000 contract workers permanent staff, the Mercury reported on Wednesday.

The 1 229 permanent contracts were conversions of 191 fixed-term contracts and 1 038 short-term contracts, and would take effect from 1 December. Most involved metro police.

The metro police, who are members of the SA Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) have been calling for the axing of their boss Eugene Nzama.

According to the Mercury, Nzama has been offered two years salary to leave his job or to be redeployed to another unit.

He has not accepted either offer.

    Look at the positive side at least they have the security of employment but dont agree to Nzama being offered two years salary to leave his job or to be redeployed.
