The petroleum industry strike is set to intensify this morning with unions preparing to march on Sasol’s offices in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

Unions are calling for a nine-point-five-percent wage increase while employers have offered eight-percent.

The strike, which is now in its third week, has caused disruptions are hundreds of filling stations around the country. Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal have been hardest hit, with some fuel retailers still struggling with erratic supply.
