Kindly note that SAMWU [SA Municipal Workers Union] has notified the municipality that it will embark upon strike action from Thursday 10 August 2017.
The strike action will commence with a march at 10:00 from the Caltex garage in Johan Le Roux street, along Meyer street and Mitchell street to the Municipal offices in Mitchell street. They intend to hand over a memorandum of demands to the Municipal Manager or his nominee at 12:00. They are to disperse from 15:00.
Thereafter they intend to picket every day from 07:30 to 16:00 within a demarcated area in the public parking space at the municipal offices in Mitchell street. The picketing will take place over an undetermined period as yet.
The municipality has made arrangements to ensure that our clients and stakeholders can still visit us in an undisturbed manner to conduct their business with the municipality.
Although we have put measures in place to ensure continued service delivery as far as possible, please note that certain services may be affected.
We ask the community to bear with us in these trying times.
