Fetakgomo Tubatse employees at loggerheads


The erstwhile employees of Fetakgomo Municipality have returned back to their offices in Apel. The workers handed a letter to the Municipal Manager of the merged Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality Maureen Judith Ntshudisane citing safety concerns.
The letter came just a day after a mass protest by the Steelpoort communities who also called for the merger of the two municipalities to be dissolved.
The employees cited that they were intimidated and were unprotected. They also highlighted concerns with regards to safety and possible attacks from their fellow employees 
Meanwhile the FTLM spokesman, Ngoato Rachidi said the FTLM has since referred the matter to the MEC for cooperative governance, human settlements and traditional affairs, for assistance and employees’ unions for engagements, while internal investigations are under way. 
“We have also put on record that it is the responsibility of the municipality to ensure that all employees are treated with respect and dignity and that no employees have to feel intimidated or threatened under any circumstances.”
According to insiders at the troubled municipality, the main concern is placement of workers.
“Certain employees have been placed in higher positions than previously occupied after the amalgamation without following the procedures stipulated in the Section 12 notice or the collective agreement, with certain employees being placed in positions that do not exist in the organogram approved by the council after the amalgamation. Some workers were even demoted,” our source revealed.
