South Africa: No Services as Workers Strike

Business Day, News Report, Posted: Jul 28, 2009

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa As the strike by South African municipal workers spread across the county, delivery of services has been hit the hardest, Business Day reports.

Municipal workers went on strike in South Africas major cities Monday to protest what they said were poor wages. The South African Municipal Workers Union, and the Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union are demanding a 15 percent pay rise or R2,500 (about $320), whichever is the highest, according to Business Day.

The strike is expected to last at least until Wednesday while unions obtain a mandate from their members on a new offer from South African Local Government Association for an 11.5 percent raise immediately and 1.5 percent in January, the newspaper reports.
