Security guards to continue strike

The strike by security guards who are members of the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union is set to continue as discussions over pay increases remain deadlocked. The strike has already been marked by violence against guards who report for work and damage to private property. Satawu general secretary Randall Howard says marches have been planned for all major city centres on Wednesday. The guards would target the Department of Labour in the hope that Minister Membathisi Mdladlana would intervene in the strike. Howard says the workers insist on an increase of eleven percent while employers have offered eight percent. All other unions have accepted the offer.
