Fuel workers head to the CCMA
Fuel workers union CEPPWAWU has approached the CCMA following another round of failed wage negotiations with the employer.
Three weeks ago workers downed tools after wage negotiations collapsed.
Fuel shortages have hit most parts of the country, although pumps have not run entirely dry since the labour action.
Workers have rejected the 7% wage increase offered by the National Petroleum Employer’s Association and are demanding a 9% pay hike for 2016.
Deputy Chairperson of the National Petroleum Employers Association Zimisele Majamane said the CCMA has not indicated when they will meet.
“At this stage we are waiting on the CCMA for a date and we will probably meet with the union at the CCMA,” he said.
