Cape Town - Pandemonium broke out at the Cape Town Civic Centre on Thursday morning when a group of firefighters managed to gain entry to the building, forcing security to put the centre under temporary lock-down. Staff and visitors struggled to access the building.
The Cape Argus understands that a memorandum was handed to City officials regarding equal pay.
“We are here because we handed over a memorandum to the City officials it was peaceful and we were not robust or anything,” the firefighters representative Leroy Colete said.
The City of Cape Town’s Safety and Security Directorate previously addressed the concerns from a dispute with unions representing workers in the Fire and Rescue Service, on Monday.
