The Ekurhuleni Metro Municipality has applauded its employees for disregarding a call by municipal union Samwu to go on strike.
Despite the call, the municipality has recorded a hundred-percent employee attendance.
The union is unhappy about the dismissal of the seven of its Ekurhuleni shop stewards.
The municipality is defending the dismissals at the Local Government Bargaining Council.
The shop stewards are accused of assaulting the presiding officer at a disciplinary hearing.
