Transnet workers down tools over wage dispute causing disruptions to vessel movements and operations nationally.

“Members of a union at Transnet went on strike on Thursday, but the rail utility insisted that the industrial action was illegal.

Despite Transnet raising its wage hike offer to unions (from 1.5% to 3%) on Wednesday, the United National Transport Union (UNTU) served Transnet with a notice of its intention to embark on a strike from Thursday.”
