THE National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) was yesterday served with legal papers to put an end to strike violence.
Fuel Retailers' Association (FRA) chief executive Regie Sibiya said the court order by the Labour Court was issued on behalf of the FRA and the Retail Motor Industry Organisation.
The application was made on Friday and relates to violence and intimidation since the beginning of the strike last Monday in the fuel, retailers and components sectors.
Volkswagen Group of South Africa communications manager Matt Gennrich said due to certain component shortages related to the strike, VWSA was running one of the two planned shifts a day. "This means there will be additional volumes lost above those lost during the recent three-week vehicle industry strike. It further harms our reputation as a reliable supplier of vehicles to world markets," he said.
General Motors SA communications manager Denise van Huyssteen said "supply has been affected and since Monday we have not been able to build vehicles at our Struandale plant".
