Mogale City workers protest over lack of PPEs and non-payment

South Africa

Johannesburg – Employees of Mogale City Municipality on Monday abandoned their posts to protest against a lack of personal protective equipment (PPE).

The workers say they were also promised Covid-19 compensation fund and overtime payments, which were due on Monday.

Employees blocked the roads with burning tyres.

“There was a COVID-19 compensation that the management had promised to the workers because when everyone was home, they were meant to be paid, but that was not done,” said spokesperson of the South African Municipality Workers’ Union Justice Nkomo.
