Petrol strike looms


Best you fill your car's tank this weekend!

Workers will be striking for higher wages as well as better working conditions, according to the National Union of Metalworkers (Numsa).

The union had previously planned to start the strike on 2 September, but postponed it in order to buy time for further talks with employers to take place.

The union had demanded a R30 per hour increase across the board on actual rates of pay in all sectors and divisions for workers earning above R6000 per month by 2016, among other things.
