Mayor Athol Trollip addresses the strike

Dear Resident

I regret that so many citizens of our metro were faced with the most debilitating service delivery breakdown during the week long municipal worker’s strike. 

We appreciate that some communities were severely affected by water and electricity outages. This is serious and constitutes more than inconvenience. 

We were severely constrained in dealing with this challenge due to serious intimidation and public protestation. We apologize most sincerely for this situation. 

We do however recognise and respect the rights of our municipal staff to embark upon industrial action. In his regard we are relieved to advise that the strike is over and that municipal service backlogs will be addressed. We appreciate the co-operation of the respective trade unions in related negotiations.

A heartfelt thanks especifically to you, the residents, for your understanding and patience.
