Rand West municipality may fire 700 striking workers
More than 700 Rand West City local municipality employees may be set to lose their jobs.
The municipality says the workers have been engaged in an unprotected strike for close to a month demanding a salary increase.
South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) regional secretary Kgosi Breedt says they will be challenging the action by the municipality.
