Unions threaten to extend transport strike

Trade unions involved inMonday's Transnet strike say they will not hesitate to call on their members to strike for three more days if they do not get a decent response from the parastatal. About 50-thousand Transnet workers, affiliated to four unions, downed tools around the country today in protest against proposed restructuring plans at the company which they fear could lead to massive job cuts. The unions handed a memorandum to parliament this afternoon, calling for an end to bad faith negotiations and guarantees that all retirement benefits in all three Transnet pension funds will be guaranteed by the new employers.
