Pikitup to enforce the no work, no pay policy against striking casual workers

Pikitup says it will enforce the no work, no pay policy against casual workers who are hellbent on striking for the past four days.

Waste collection continues to be affected in several parts of the city as employees whose contracts are due to expire soon at different depots.

Workers are demanding permanent employment from Pikitup accusing the company of overlooking them after years of service.

Only two depots are operational across the city, while 10 have been affected by the strike.

Pikitup spokesperson Muzi Mkhwanazi said law enforcement officials had been deployed to deal with the matter.

“Pikitup management condemns the actions of the protesters and appeals to them to refrain from violent and threatening conduct, which prevents employees from fulfilling their responsibilities to the residents of the city who have a constitutional right to a clean environment.”
