Road workers strike

The Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW) reported about the good progress being made with maintenance on the R43, between Langhoofte and Worcester, through Villiersdorp last week.

Byron la Hoe, Communications Officer for DTPW, confirmed yesterday that the project leader of the department visited this site on 9 May for the monthly site meeting. He said: “[The project leader] was informed that local labour was currently on strike, due to the labourers being unsatisfied with their hourly rates.” The contractor informed the project leader that they are paying the labour according to the minimum rates, which are set out by the national bargaining commission for the construction industry.

La Hoe says the labourers are requesting demands that are very unrealistic and saying that they want hourly rates, which are way above the minimum allowed amount. “The contractor has set an ultimatum for the labour, according to the Labour Relations Act, which includes that they come to work on 10 May or risk possible termination of their employment contracts.”
