02 July 2014

The National Office Bearers of the South African Municipal Workers' Union (SAMWU) are currently meeting with the national leadership of SALGA in preparation for the conciliation hearing scheduled to be heard tomorrow (02 July) in the South African Local Government Bargaining Council. SAMWU is happy that the national leadership of SALGA has heard our call that these negotiations would only be completed if they are present. We trust that SALGA national leadership will now take charge of the talks as we seek to ensure that our members receive increases that have real gains for them.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) will be going for conciliation with SALGA in the Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC) from the 1st to 3rd July. The conciliations come after three rounds of negotiations which were a fruitless exercise and a waste of workers money as there was no commitment from SALGA to ensure that the negotiations are concluded before the current collective agreement lapses.

It is with sadness that we as SAMWU have to inform you of sustained attacks on the gains of the National Democratic Revolution by those who have turned JMPD into their primary target to further their career and business interests.We are faced with a new post 1994, enemies being greed, class interests, material self-interest and a distorted narrative of cadreship at JMPD in particular and in local government in general. It is incumbent upon us as a revolutionary workers’ refuge to dispense our moral responsibility to articulate and defend worker interests in the midst of evil perpetuated by those cloaked in the garb of the “people’s will”.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) has formally declared a dispute with SALGA in relation to the salary and wage negotiations. The dispute comes after three rounds of negotiations which were a fruitless exercise, a waste of our time and workers money. SALGA has not shown any commitment to having these negotiations completed before the current agreement lapses. SAMWU has been dragged to meetings with SALGA under the auspice of negotiations while they knew very well that it was a disguise to take the army of tourists on holiday at great cost.
