Trade Union Solidarity says it decided to join the coal sector strike after it came to light that executive officers in the sector received increases of up to 93-percent.

Wage negotiations deadlocked on Friday.

Employers in the coal sector made a final wage offer of eight-point-five-percent for category four employees and a seven-percent increase for employees on other job levels.

Solidarity’s Moira Kloppers says big increases are needed to retain skilled employees in the country.
