Durban - Staff employed by the Durban Solid Waste overturned bins and strewn litter on the streets of the Durban city as they made their way to the city hall on Tuesday morning in protest over salary increases given to MK vets at the Water and Waste Department.
Staff driving various waste removal trucks had made their way from depots around the eThekwini Municipality.
Drivers stopped the trucks in Pinetown and on the N3 Durban bound near Westville, bringing traffic to a complete hall for a few minutes.
Staff then converged in the Durban city centre tipping over trucks filled with waste onto the streets of the CBD.
According to workers at DSW their protests is in solidarity with their colleagues at the Water and Waste Department who downed tools last week after it emerged that MK vets employed by the city had their pay increased from R9 000 to R20 000. They are demanding equal pay to the MK vets and have vowed to bring the city to its knees if their demands are not met.
