City Power meets with unions

City Power has met with two unions over an unprotected strike by some employees, its spokesman Sol Masolo has said.

“In the meeting, which was an information-sharing session, City Power indicated its concern about the manner in which striking employees disrupted the network,” Masolo said today in a statement.

“It shared the steps taken to ensure a continuous electricity supply…”

The company said it had committed itself to negotiating with two unions only – the SA Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) and the Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union (Imatu) – due to “formal channels previously agreed on”.

Masolo did not elaborate on this.

A few hundred disgruntled workers downed tools on Wednesday over a new shift structure.

City Power said the new shifts were to improve service delivery. The strike led to power outages in various parts of Johannesburg this week.
