Petrol attendants to strike | News Article
Johannesburg - Thousands of workers in the motor industry, including petrol attendants, will embark on a strike today.
 
The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) said this was after wage talks with the employer deadlocked.
 
Numsa's deputy secretary general Karl Cloete said the industry has around 300 000 workers, of whom 70 000 are Numsa members.
 
Petrol attendants, workers at components retailers, panelbeaters, car and spare parts dealers, fitment workshops, and dealerships will down tools.
 
Numsa wants a R30 an hour pay increase, among other things.
 
Jakkie Olivier, CEO of the Retail Motor Industry, says the strike will be widely felt.

The strike will start in Gauteng, with the other provinces to join in on Wednesday and Thursday.
 
Meanwhile striking Numsa workers at five of seven vehicle manufacturing plants will return to work today after a wage agreement was reached.
