2011-08-17: The City of Johannesburg services operational

ON the second day of national municipal workers strike by the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU), the City of Johannesburg reported that its essential services are operating at full capacity today.

Work attendance was still as high as recorded yesterday at over 90 percent by different departments and Municipal Owned Entities (MOEs).

"We also want to use this opportunity to notify residents of the City of Johannesburg Municipality of a possibility of an unavoidable delay occurring in the performance of the services provided by the City and Municipal Owned Entities due to the current industrial action".  

The City said however that it will do everything in its power to maintain service delivery to residents and in a situation where work disruption happens, contingency plans where possible will be put into operation. Residents are asked to be vigilant and inform the City when any disruption of services takes place in order for the City to attend to make possible alternative arrangements to continue service delivery.  

Those who may find pay-points for water and lights not operating, they are advised to make use of any EasyPay outlets (like Woolworth, Pick n Pay, Shoprite Checkers, etc); any SA Post Office and via any bank's internet website, branch or ATM."
