The National Employers’ Association of South Africa is calling for the National Union of Metalworkers to suspend its strike and return to the negotiating table. 

This as over 200,000 Numsa members in the engineering, communications and automotive sectors are embarking on a national strike today demanding a 12 % wage increase while the employer is offering between 7 and 8 percent. 

Neasa says it is confident that a solution could be found between the parties. 

Neasa Spokesperson Sya van der Walt-Potgieter said NEASA feels that NUMSA’s decision to go on strike is really premature there are still a lot of outstanding matters we need to discuss to prevent this strike from happening.

“As we know that a strike will not only affect the economy and workers but also damage South Africas international image van der Walt-Potgieter added.
