Numsa still to decide on offer

2013-09-06 00:00

NO decision has been made yet on the offer by the automobile employers, said the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) yesterday.

Toyota South Africa’s Durban plant is at a standstill.

Spokesperson Leo Kok yesterday said they would have lost close to 11 000 cars since the start of the strike.

Numsa national treasurer Mphumzi Maqungo said the union leadership is expecting feedback from all the plants in order to decide on the current offer.

The employers had offered an eight percent increase in year one, seven percent in year two and another seven percent in year three of the new three-year wage deal.

“Tomorrow we are expecting feedback from all the plants and reports will be consolidated before a formal report is made. The message we want to communicate as leadership must be consistent. Once we consolidate the reports, we will then allow for a collective decision on how to move forward,” said Maqungo.

Today will be the third week since operations at the Toyota Durban plant came to a standstill.

Numsa had demanded a 20% wage increase but later settled for 14%.

• The Chamber of Mines yesterday tabled a revised wage offer to the National Union of Mineworkers, the NUM said yesterday, Sapa reported.
