Members of the SATAWU Welkom Local are set to march to the Matjhabeng Local Municipality today to demand that their employers be paid for services rendered.
The members work for three companies – Man in One Security, MBV Security and Scheme Security – who the municipality owes millions for services already rendered. As a result of the non-payment employees of Man in One Security have not been paid in three months, those working for MBV haven’t received pay packets for four months while the situation at Scheme Security is dire as they are owed eight months pay.
To add insult to injury the municipality has already put the contracts held by the three companies out to tender as it intends to terminate the existing service level agreements.
Workers have decided this far and no further and will therefore march from Unitrans Secondary School to the municipal offices in Stateway. They will handover a memorandum to Free Srate Premier Sisi Ntombela , the MEC of Cogta and the Executive Mayor.
