The Congress of South African Trade Unions in the North West is elated that the workers at Ditsobotla Local Municipality finally received their October salaries last night.

COSATU appreciates the swift and immediate intervention of the provincial government, particularly the Acting Premier in ensuring that the workers get paid.

Whilst we welcome the payment of these outstanding salaries, we are equally aware that it would be premature get over exited as there are still a myriad issues which must be attended to immediately.

As an immediate task, those who are responsible must attend to the outstanding payment on the third-party deductions.

We also call on the officials in office to immediately facilitate the upcoming payments in order to guarantee that the workers receive their November salaries timeously.  

COSATU together with its alliance partner, the African National Congress(ANC) will be monitoring the situation at the municipality until we are satisfied that there is stability.

The Provincial Secretary of COSATU and that of the ANC will tomorrow, the 9th of November will return to Ditsobotla to give feed back to the workers.
