todayMarch 14, 2024 3

Background
share close

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa has accused employers in the bus passenger sector of instigating a potential national strike by insisting that workers absorb contract penalties and establishing a two-tier labor market. Following unsuccessful negotiations and a minimal wage increase offer, the union has rejected these demands and is gearing up for industrial action. Numsa is advocating for adjustments to allowances, medical insurance, and working hours, alleging that employers are engaging in exploitation. Phakamile Hlubi-Majola, spokesperson for Numsa, has pledged to vigorously advocate for fair treatment.
