05 June 2014

Nearly 500 members of South Africa’s Nation Union of Mineworkers have gone on strike at building firm Group Five for higher wages and reduced hours.

More than 450 workers at a Group Five project in Durban went on strike on May 26 for a R10 000 bonus and a three-hour reduction in their working day on Saturdays.

The union said it also wanted representation by a full-time shop steward.
