Numsa satisfied with wage offer despite Eastern Cape objections
19 July 2011
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa says their branches in eight out of the nine provinces have accepted a 10-percent wage increase from employers.
Union members will soon return to work following a two-week-long strike in the engineering sector.
Numsa’s Irvin Jim says branches in the Eastern Cape are still not happy with the offer.
They had originally called for a 13-percent increase.
Jim says however that a majority decision will be made and Numsa is satisfied with the offer.
