NUM members embark on strike action

24 April 2010

Over 1000 members of the National Union of Mineworkers nationwide today downed tools at Lafarge over a wage dispute.

Chief amongst their demands workers want management to implement an 11 percent across-the-board salary increase.

Lafarge has both a cement and aggregate business unit.

Workers are also demanding a shift and housing allowance.

NUM has warned that the strike will have a negative effect on the construction industry.
