ERA has revived the monthly domestic workers watch meetings from September 26th to December 2018. Open to all domestic workers in Emmarentia, the meetings will cover various issues. The meetings will take place at the Emmarentia Sailing Club on Louw Geldenhuys Road from 10h00 – 11h30.
“The Emmarentia domestic watch was a good thing,” says Molly, one of the domestic workers who attended the previous Domestic Watch meetings.
“It was a good thing to meet with other ladies, we shared a lot of things,” says Molly. “We taught each other about being aware of things happening around our workplace, to be always alert, even when walking in the street.”
The first talk is on identify theft on September 26. Cost (ERA is appealing to employers to cover the costs) R50 per session (to pay for speaker) plus R20 for tea.

Gautrain Bus Demand Survey provides opportunity for both current and potential Gautrain passengers that would like to use Gautrain bus from their point of origin to the station and from the station to their final destination. The data will assist in the planning for the expansion of the Gautrain bus networks at various Gautrain stations. This survey also allows the participants to set their geographical location. The geo-location helps the GMA to analyse the spatial distribution of Gautrain passengers in order to determine the best route to service the area and to place bus stops.
The information provided by participants will not be shared with any third party.
Your responses are entirely voluntary, and you may refuse to complete any part or all of this survey. This survey is designed to be anonymous, meaning that the information will be used by the GMA only and does not require your personal information except your location.
Residents of Buffalo Road and Niger Road in Emmarentia applied to the City of Johannesburg (COJ) for restricted access to their roads on the grounds of security concerns. COJ has approved this restricted access (see page 2 of the document below) in Provincial Notice 833 of 2018 in the Provincial Gazette number 228, dated 15 August 2018.
However, this is subject to Emmarentia residents and any other person that uses these roads agreeing to this. COJ has authorised the Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) to give effect to the restrictions and manage the consultative process in relations to these. Comments must be submitted on or before 15 September 2018.
ERA is managing the process of collecting comments from residents so please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 September 2018 so that we may consolidate the views expressed and submit a detailed response within the deadline.
