pikitupeNCA reports that disciplinary procedures against thousands of striking Pikitup workers in Johannesburg have hit a snag with the SA Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) demanding hat interpreters in all 11 official languages be made available.  

The employee of the city’s waste management agency were meant to face disciplinary hearings for three days, starting on Tuesday.  Meanwhile, according to Joburg mayor Parks Tau, some workers want to return to work, but many are concerned about their safety.  Thousands of workers have been on an unprotected strike for weeks, demanding that salary discrepancies be corrected and that MD Amanda Nair should resign.  Pikitup has accused staff of disrupting emergency plans to clean the city, but Samwu claims its members aren't responsible for the violence.
