SAMWU Mpumalanga is highly disturbed by the continuous intention by the expelled and suspended comrades to close the national office down. It is really counter revolutionary for comrades to claim that they intend to bring sanity and order in the organisation but instead all they do is to bring the organisation into disrepute by spreading malicious lies and creating an impression that the union is about to be liquidated. It is unprecedented that some members/expelled members will decide out of the blue to demand keys of THE NATIONAL OFFICE. This so call SOS people must be reminder that SAMWU is a WORKER CONTROL UNION hence every little action or step they take must be a product of discussion by members.

SAMWU Free State Media Statement
The strike/lockout in Metsimaholo has been running for over 13 weeks now from the 17th June 2014 with a 10day break in between. The strike came as a result of a number of unresolved disputes of mutual interest on matters that were raised with the employer in a bargaining forum. The employer reneged on the collective agreements and in some cases refused to agree on conclusion of collective agreements. This led to mediation by South ALGBC Commissioner after a number of certificates to strike were duly issued by various commissioners. This gives impetus to the fact that issues raised in Metsimaholo are genuine matters of mutual interest and arise out of employer/employee relations that were undermined by the employer.

SAMWU Condemns Hooliganism at Head Offices
The South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) condemns the hooliganism of the so called SOS group that put the union offices and staff and more importantly themselves at danger. The group led by former leaders who include Sello Selepe, Mohau Mokgatla, Nomfezo Mdingiand Gati Malete have now resorted to violence and hooliganism as they have lost all credibility and standing within constitutional structures of the union.
