Sticky matter of strike causes extension of tender for oils and lubricants

Due to the sticky matter of the municipal strike that commenced last Thursday, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has no choice but to extend its deadline for a tender for oils and lubricants.

Initially advertised in local newspapers with reference number SCM/18-197/G, and closing in two days’ time (Thursday, 21 June), the outcome of the tender is unlikely to satisfy municipal officials due to the prevailing strike.

The Automotive Sub-directorate of the Infrastructure and Engineering Directorate will now have to wait for Thursday, 5 July when the tender for their oils and lubricants will be closed.

In the meantime, municipal management and political leadership are working hard to deal with issues raised by municipal unions Imatu and Samwu.
