nelsonmandelabayeNCA reports that the municipal workers' strike in Port Elizabeth is set to continue and, as the strike enters its fifth day on Tuesday, refuse is piling up on the streets with discarded bags lining almost every curb.  

While the municipality works on a contingency plan, it has called on all residents to take their refuse to a waste centre.  But there seems to be no quick solution as the municipality says it cannot afford to pay R75-million back pay in long service bonuses.  According to officials, they are waiting for the mayoral committee to sign off on a new long service bonus offer.  A final offer will apparently be decided on at the mayoral committee meeting on Wednesday and then given to the unions to peruse.
