JOBURG - The City of Joburg has issued a statement that workers for the Waste Management Company, Pikitup, have embarked on an illegal strike which will affect refuse collection in all regions. 

The workers who have embarked on the strike are affiliated to the South African Municipal Worker’s Union (SAMWU).

Pikitup apologised to residents and has appealed for patience from its residents and business owners and to not leave their bins outside their properties on collection days until further notice.

The City and Pikitup board and management condemned the SAMWU worker’s unlawful actions.

This publication will update with more information as it comes to light.

The strike comes after work stoppages by SAMWU members in November and December last year:

As a Fourways resident, I’m in tune with my community, but as a journalist I’m always looking for the untold story. I’m ready to help change the world, or at least the community I live in, through words written and actions taken.
