Johannesburg - Major roads in Isando, Ekurhuleni remained closed on Thursday as striking truck drivers marched to the offices of the Road Freight Employers' Association (RFEA).

"There are over 1 000 strikers marching and being accompanied by members of the SAPS, Ekurhuleni metro police and private security companies," metro police spokesperson Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng said.

Isando Road, Andre Greyling and Van Agt streets were some of the roads closed.

The workers intended delivering memorandums to the RFEA head office and courier company DHL, both in Isando.

SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union spokesperson Vincent Masoga said they had organised the march.

Talks to end the violent strike were scheduled to resume at the Road Freight Bargaining Council on Thursday evening.

      I wonder if they would clear the road if they saw Jub JUb coming in a truck?

    Employers don't give in to blackmail or else you are doomed for life. Consumers can always reduce the fruits, fuel they use to accommodate the strike. The question is can these strikers hold on for longer; Check mate!!
