Msunduzi Municipality obtained a court interdict against its workers from the waste management unit at Durban’s Labour Court on Tuesday.

This was confirmed by municipal spokesperson, Thobeka Mafumbatha who said the interdict, which was granted in Msunduzi’s favour, restricts the unlawful strikers from continuing with their strike.

Mafumbatha told The Witness that once the order was received, their attorneys will get the sheriff to serve it on the striking staff.
