Communications union threatens to strike

Solidarity and the Communication Workers' Union have rejected a revised Telkom offer on profit-sharing and service awards. The offer was made on condition employees do not strike next week. According to Telkom human resources group executive Charlotte Mokoena the revised offer included improved long-service awards, compression of grades and increased gain-sharing for the lowest paid workers. Earlier another union, the South African Communications Union, accepted Telkom's offer, but Solidarity and the CWU threatened to strike if the discussions did not lead to a resolution. The CWU is reportedly planning to march on Telkom's head office in Pretoria on Monday and undertake a national stay-away in all the other provinces until Tuesday.
