The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) welcomes the ANC Local Government election manifesto as launched by President Jacob Zuma on the 16th April 2016 in Port Elizabeth.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) has noted talks of the formation of a new federation with union’s name being thrown around as those who will be joining this ill-conceived formation. We will never be part of an organisation which has been formed out of bitterness and anger. Anybody who thinks that they will take SAMWU to this grouping is only lying to themselves.

SAMWU Clarity on Bogus CEC

14 March 2016

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) National Office Bearers has learnt with surprise of an informal meeting by individuals which was illegally, unconstitutionally and mischievously named the Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting of the union. We put it on record that such a meeting was not sanctioned by the NOBs who are constitutionally required to convene union CEC meetings. We consider that meeting to be as informal and unconstitutional, particularly because it was not convened in terms of Section 9 of the union’s constitution.

11 March 2016

The South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) national office has learnt of the latest developments at the City of Johannesburg's waste management entity, Pikitup.

We have engaged the regional leadership which is currently leading the protest action. We have further taken steps to ensure that our members' legitimate grievances are addressed and such we will be meeting with Pikitup management in a bid to resolve the impasse.

We therefore urge our members at Pikitup to return to work so to allow this process to unfold. Our members should return to work as early as the next shift begins.
