STRIKING Nelson Mandela Bay Numsa members in the fuel and retail motor industry vowed yesterday to continue striking until employers remove a clause preventing them from making any demands for three years.
About 1500 Numsa members decided during a general meeting at the Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton yesterday to call for the "peace clause", which would force the union not to make any demands for three years, to be scrapped.
Numsa regional secretary Phumzile Nodongwe said the union would meet with the employers last night.
"So far there is no offer on the table but the workers are demanding that the peace clause is done away with.
"Even if we get the double-digit wage increase we are talking about, if the peace clause is still in existence, the increase will be futile."
The indefinite national strike by about 70000 Numsa members enters its 12th day today. – Mkhululi Ndamase
