Strikes, Protests & Travel Delays
  • Samwu yet to decide on strike action - Despite turning down a revised wage offer of 5.9% by the SA Local Government Association (Salga) this week, municipal workers have refused to be drawn into commenting about strike action.
  • MTN strike turns chaotic - The street outside MTN’s plush head office near Roodepoort in Johannesburg resembled a war zone on Friday as striking workers burnt tyres and barricaded the entrance amid claims that police had used teargas and fired rubber bullets.
  • Metals industry to contract in 2014 after strikes - Strikes in South Africa’s platinum and metals industries will contribute to a contraction of as much as 2.5% in the steel and engineering sector this year, according to the biggest employer group.
