The Congress of South African Trade Unions has pledged its full support for the members of the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union, and other unions in the transport and logistics industry, who went on strike on Tuesday.

Cosatu Spokesperson Patrick Craven said that they hope a settlement will be reached soon.

The truck drivers are demanding a 12,5 percent increase, while the employers are offering 8.5 percent increase over two years.

Craven urged the strikers to keep the protest peaceful.

As the strike continues today, the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union which represents the truck drivers said the Lonmin wage dispute has become a yardstick for how wage negotiations should be handled.
