Cape Town - A SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) meeting to discuss a possible strike against the City of Cape Town turned rowdy when some members were shown the door after they had raised questions about alleged missing union funds.
More than 1 000 Samwu members attended the meeting at the Good Hope Centre for a report-back on progress with worker grievances that the union had raised with the city.
Samwu members will meet this week at plant level to discuss the possibility of a strike.
The meeting started with Samwu’s regional secretary, Mikel Khumalo, explaining meetings the union has held with Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille since it gave her a memorandum of demands in May. The atmosphere changed when some members at the back of the hall began demanding answers to the question “what happened to the millions?”.
