  1. As there was no advance warning of the strike, I assume it is illegal and there fore unprotected. Does the MM have the gonads to fire the strikers and employ people who genuinely want to work and not merely appear daily in order to get paid at month end. The fact that the Municipality is “working around the clock to secure the services of an interim provider as soon as possible” indicates a lack of forward planning. Illegal strikes are not an unusual occurrence in Municipal entities and I would expect contingency plans to be on hand to be implemented immediately , without the elite of Municipal staff having to forego their well deserved beauty sleep in such an unseemly manner as having to negate the actions of wanton disruption of an essential service.
