On Monday, the Democratic Alliance (DA) in the province claimed that the ongoing strike in the department had been fuelled by city officials who allegedly flouted the HR process in order to hire uMkhonto weSizwe veterans.

The party’s KZN premier candidate, Zwakele Mncwango, said in a statement: “The hiring of MK veterans led to general staff being paid more than their senior counterparts, an issue union leaders called to be resolved, and were ignored. ” It was reported that the striking workers are demanding to be paid the same amount as the MK veterans.

Workers are demanding that they also be given a Grade 10 salary increase, which MK veterans were given.
