Supply threatened as strike looms at Rand Water

Rand Water employees may strike‚ a move that could affect water supply‚ a union representative said on Friday.

“Instead of engaging in constructive debate and negotiations‚ the CEO chose to rather threaten employees that they will be fired if they participate in strike action‚” an attitude that also characterised in this year’s wage negotiations‚ Venter said.

Given the current economic climate striking was not the preferred option but‚ without constructive discussions “it would seem as if full blown industrial action might be unavoidable”‚ he said.

Rand Water management has asked for a meeting between the two parties on Monday‚ August 17.
