Numsa case against City Power to be heard at the South Gauteng Court tomorrow Tuesday 04 June 2013
The matter between the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and City Power will be heard tomorrow June 4, 2013, at the South Gauteng Court, Cnr Pritchard and Von Brandis Streets, Johannesburg, Gauteng province.
NUMSA is taking City Power to court over Johannesburg municipal electricity utility’s refusal to disclose information on the basis of which a R800-million tender for supply and installation of low pressure solar water geysers was awarded in May 2012.
A throng of NUMSA members drawn from plants that manufacture solar water heaters will be picketing outside the court.
The picket forms part of our organizational strategy to exert pressure to the Court to compel City Power to give the organisation the records and documents in line with the Promotion of Access to Information (PAIA) Act of 2000.
NUMSA’s National Treasurer MPHUMZI MAQUNGO will address the picket outside the court as stated below:
Details are as follows:
DATE: Tuesday 4 June 2013
