newsPretoria News reports that the security officers at industrial parks in Ga-Rankuwa and Hammanskraal who downed tools last month have resumed work after receiving some of their payments.  

The guards, stationed at Babelegi as well as Ga-Rankuwa industrial parks, went on a strike following months of delays in salary payments.  The North West Development Corporation (NWDC), which owns the industrial parks, struggled to make payment to the company contracted to provide security services.  Subsequently, the guards were furious and blamed the security company.  They took their grievance to NWDC’s offices in Ga-Rankuwa last week.  They blocked the gate to ensure that nobody could work and demanded that the situation be attended to without delay.  The decision to block the company’s gate affected work in the offices of the SA Social Service Agency (Sassa), a tenant in the same building.  The guards were eventually paid and have since returned to work.  A meeting has been scheduled for Friday to further discuss the matter as the guards want to know when and if they will be paid their overtime, public holidays and other money owed to them.
