SAMWU Update on Salary Payments at Mopani District Municipality
The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) is pleased to announce that the Mopani District Municipality acceded to our demand for the immediate payment of salaries for workers within the Municipality. We have since confirmed that all employees were paid their monthly salaries on the 27th October albeit 2 days late.
We have since reached an agreement with the Municipality that workers who experienced inconveniences and financial consequences such as bank charges for failed and returned debit orders would be refunded in full by the Municipality. This agreement was further referred to a Local Labour Forum for ratification.
We however would not think twice to join in the call and demand for the removal of the Mayor should the agreement reached not be honoured, particularly that of ensuring that workers are paid in full and timeously.
