No end in sight to fuel refinery strike
Some petrol stations have run dry, while there are new promises of contingency plans being put in place.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Petroleum Employers Association says there is no breakthrough in sight for the strike affecting petrol refineries and stations.
A dispute over wages has led to the strike, with workers asking for a 9% increase and employers offering a maximum of 7%.
The association's Zimisele Majamane says: "The 7% is the employer's offer, taking into account a number of things. Insofar as when we could find an agreement and end the strike, I'm not sure, as we've not planned negotiation."
