Parks and Cemetery employees block the entrance to Emfuleni Local Municipality

VAAL TRIANGLE - Workers of the Parks and Cemetery Department of the Emfuleni Local Municipality are in disputes with the municipality over unpaid overtime. According to the Vaalweekblad, employees have downed tools and blocked the gates of ELM’s head offices in Vanderbijlpark this morning, demanding payment that has been due for the past five months. It is reported that they have been joined by local funeral parlors, who have been inconvenienced by the closure of the Parks and Cemetery Department. ELM’s Executive Mayor, Gift Moerane is said to be in talks with the disgruntled employees to find a solution to the matter.
