Negotiations with Numsa members continues today
13 September 2010
Negotiations with employers of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) are continuing today.
About 70,000 workers have embarked on a strike since last week.
The union members rejected the 10 percent increase and followed by a nine percent hikes in the next two years made by the Retail Motor Industry.
Numsa are demanding for a 15 percent wage increase and they want the use of labour brokers to be abolished.
The Retail Motor Industry has obtained an interdict against striking workers that belong to Numsa.
The court has ruled that striking workers who intimidate non-striking workers could face arrest if they protest within 25 meters of any service station in the country.
