The Congress of South African Trade Unions in Limpopo said it is fully behind the strike by the Communication Workers Union members working for MTN in the province.

About 300 MTN workers are on strike in KwaZulu-Natal as part of a nationwide dispute over wages and they have given the mobile operator seven days to respond to their grievances.

Cosatu Provincial Secretary Gerald Twala said amongst some of their demands is 16% bonuses, 10% wage increases.

“That MTN should recognise CWU as it has increased its membership in the sector and the fact that most of the employees within MTN are casual workers or temporary employees, we are demanding that they must be permanent and the company must do away with labour brokers,” Twala added.
