[email protected] employees are continuing with their strike which started since 2 January 2018.
Earlier today, the strikers again ran amok, burning tyres and spreading garbage on the roads at Pan Africa CBD, disrupting the easy flow of traffic.
The striking workers seem more determined than ever, on Monday workers halted operations at the Pikitup depot in Marlboro preventing waste collection trucks from leaving the premises.
