2008-10-24: Industrial action by Johannesburg Water Employees

Johannesburg Water, the water and sanitation service provider for the City of Johannesburg is currently experiencing challenges arising from its employees embarking on an industrial action. The Managing Director and management have arranged an urgent meeting to give full attention to this matter.

Johannesburg Water is committed to resolving these problems as speedily as possible in order to avoid the disruption of service delivery.  We also believe that our employees would endeavor to do their best to avoid any inconvenience to customers. There is a danger that if reason does no prevail, customer service and service delivery would be compromised.

We are making arrangements with contractors to attend to urgent bursts and other emergency service delivery matters while we address employees.  At the completion of this meeting a consideration will be made to share the information with all stakeholders concerned including the media.
