The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) in Ekurhuleni will be holding a media briefing on the state of the Ekuruleni Municipality which in our view has become dysfunctional and being treated as though it is a personal property of certain individuals. Issues to be addressed include;
1. Lies by the Mayor Mzwandile Masina who promised workers money which they never received.

2. Failure by the municipality to adhere to labour relations

3. Unilateral decision to cut time off, in contravention of various labour laws

4. The municipality’s continuous attempts to collapse the union despite the December 2016 Labour Court Judgment

5. Freezing of vacancies

6. Illegal suspensions of shop stewards and members

7. Wage curve and salary progression

8. Failure by the municipality to convene LLFs

Members of the media are hereby invited to attend and cover the event. Details are as follows;

Date : Thursday 11 May 2017

Time : 13:00

Venue : 87 Elstol Avenue. JHI Building, Benoni
