Metrobus strike ends

Jul 12 2013 19:04
Johannesburg - A strike at Metrobus in Johannesburg has ended, the SA Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) says.

Spokesperson Phanuel Tshikovha said on Friday: "An agreement had been reached on Friday to appoint an investigator to look into allegations against acting managing director Lawrence Maqekoane."

He said the process of appointing an investigator would be done within seven days.

"Members are expected to report for duty from Saturday."

Samwu members went on a strike on Monday, demanding the suspension of Maqekoane.

They alleged that he had violated the disciplinary code and the organisational rights agreement and they demanded an investigation.

The City of Johannesburg said in a statement that an agreement had been reached and the bus service would resume on Monday.
