SAMWU to Join Communities to Bring Back their Dignity and Eradicate the Bucket System
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is day by day embarrassing the name of the former icon of the revolution Nelson Mandela. It is totally unacceptable for the municipality to be forced by courts to provide toilets for the community of Kriekie Valley, move village and manshashe valley.

City of Cape Town Physical Fitness Test in Fire and Rescue Department Smells Racism
While the City of Cape Town is still struggling to transform the top white management of Fire and Rescue department, the ripple effect is that the lower level workers predominantly non-white continues to be discriminated against in many ways. We fail to understand the logic behind linking physical fitness to working overtime. Its Ian Schnetler’s instruction that those who do not attend or fail their physical fitness test will be removed from working overtime. Workers are aggrieved that if they are able to do the same job from 07h30 to 16h00, why can’t they work overtime because it’s the same work. We have members who are on IOD, not fully recovered and some have medical reports suggesting that they should not do the Test. The instruction from Schnetler is discriminating them from working overtime and their families are suffering.
