COSATU Free State welcomes the decision by the Free State Provincial Government to put Maluti A Phofung Municipality under administration in terms of Section 139(b) of the Constitution of South Africa. The implications of the administration are such that the Municipal Council would be left with only two powers which are to adopt the budget and to pass bylaws, however all other decisions would have to be made by the Administrator.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) held an ordinary National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting which was proceeded by a Financial Committee meeting from the 7th to the 9th February at the Royal Hotel in Polokwane. Both these meetings were held while we are at advanced stages of the salary and wage negotiations for our members throughout the country in the South African Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC).
The NEC happens a few days after two Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officers lost their lives while on duty in the North of Johannesburg. During the NEC we also learnt of an unfortunate incident wherein a Tshwane Metro Police Department officer was brutally and barbarically shot and killed during a robbery. The NEC extends its heartfelt condolences to families and colleagues of these officers. We will therefore be intensifying our demand that a risk cover and danger allowance be extended to all workers who are exposed to such risks.
