The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) has received an unacceptable application by the Tswaing Local Municipality in the North West Province to be exempted from the recently concluded salary and wage agreement between ourselves and SALGA in the bargaining council. SAMWU will be opposing this application as it is not in the interest of our members and most importantly is not in the interest of service delivery in the municipality.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) is livid after learning of the exploitative and dangerous working conditions that security workers in the City of Matlosana are faced with on a daily basis. This relates to a lucrative security contact that the municipality has signed with Tshireletso Professional Services wherein the service provider is paid over R 1 million for security services at various water plants within the municipality. So far Tshireletso has received over R25 million from the municipality, money which we believe has not been well spent.
