Union denies involvement in Johannesburg Pikitup strike

# The South African Municipal Workers’ Union in Johannesburg’s regional secretary, Petrus Mashishi has denied involvement in the ongoing Pikitup strike. Pikitup casual staff trashed parts of the city with waste, in protest for permanent work. Mashishi has accuses ActionSA of exacerbating the situation by calling for nullification of 300 permanent Pikitup positions. He says the union calls on protesters to allow permanent Pikitup employees to work unhindered for the city’s cleanliness and community well-being.
