The Kouga Municipality regrets that a strike is taking place at present at our Jeffreys Bay offices.

The municipal offices have been closed to ensure the safety of staff as well as the public.

One of the municipal worker unions, SAMWU, has called on its members to strike today.

Their issue revolves around a number of Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) workers whose temporary contracts ended on 28 February and were not renewed.

"As a municipality we believe we acted lawfully in ending the contracts. The workers, as well as Council, were timeously informed on the decision,” said Kouga Executive Mayor Elza Van Lingen.

"Unfortunately some of the strikers broke the two access control gates at the municipality. They also broke windows and damaged cars. 

"The municipality will be laying charges in this regard,” added Van Lingen.
