Tshwane City Manager, Johann Mettler, says the city has recalled the salaries of 319 employees for the month of August.
“Where there is no evidence of attendance, the ‘no work no pay’ principle is applied. Several recalls were implemented in line with the lists submitted by line managers reporting that attendance registers were signed by employees but no services were rendered,” he says.
He has also revealed that emergency services are among the services that have been crippled, with fire stations closed since July.
Myself and the City Manager Mr Johann Mettler are hosting a media briefing to give an update on the violent strike action by Samwu. Its clear we are no longer facing a labour dispute, the City is now facing a criminal assault of a massive scale. @CityTshwane pic.twitter.com/KVoAF0PJ45
