The staff are at work, but they are not answering the phones.
One of the call centre workers, who spoke to HeraldLIVE on condition of anonymity, said they were on strike because the municipality did not follow through on what they said was a promise to insource the 33 contract workers. All of them were hired through a recruitment agency.
