SAMWU on a work stoppage at Sedibeng Water until salaries and increases are paid

VAAL TRIANGLE - The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) in a statement said they have learnt with great anger and agitation of a memorandum which was distributed by Sedibeng Water informing workers that their salaries will not be paid on the 20th of this month as per their contract of employment. Sedibeng Water claims that it is unable to pay workers’ salaries on time as a result of the failures by municipalities to pay for the services that it has rendered to them. SAMWU states that Sedibeng Water has proven itself to be an uncaring employer by giving workers only a day’s notice of the delay in salary payments yet it expects the employees to report for duty. SAMWU says they, therefore, support the cause of action that has been taken by workers at Sedibeng Water to stop working until their salaries are paid along with the increases as agreed in the Bargaining Council.
