The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) SAMWU has over a the last 12 months been raising challenges at Emergency Services Department (ESD) especially against the current Strategic Executive Director, Ms Joan De Beer.

Issued raised by workers include;

1. Non implementation of forensic report which proved that Ms Joan De Beer was involved in some corrupt activities

2. Failure by Ms Joan De Beer to provide Fire Fighters and ambulance personnel with Protective Clothing thereby exposing them to possible harm

3. Non provision of ambulances thereby exposing residents to untenable situations

4. Non filling of vacancies (50% vacancy rate)

5. Workers forced to drive unroadworthy vehicles and ambulances

6. Bullying, dividing and threatening of workers

In the interest of service delivery to the residents of the country’s Capital City, SAMWU therefore demands a thorough investigation on issues raised by workers, we further demand the immediate suspension of Ms Joan De Beer while she is subjected to a disciplinary hearing for her involvement in corrupt activities as per the outcomes of the forensic audit.
