South Africa strikes spread to transport sector
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South Africa's labor strikes spread Tuesday from its mines to the transport sector and the country's transport union says over 20,000 road freight employees are on strike demanding a pay increase.
South African Transport and Allied Workers' Union said road freight employees are demanding a 12 percent pay increase. Employers had offered an 8.5 percent increase, an offer that was rejected in the Gauteng province earlier Tuesday, SATAWU spokesman Vincent Masoga said. The workers also want an equal increase for workers classified under the council's extended bargaining unit, he said.
