CWU expected to give briefing today over Telkom strike
The Communication Workers Union is expecting to give a briefing today to explain its grievances.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is expected to give clarity today on a way forward in the Telkom strike.
Workers affiliated to the CWU downed tools three weeks ago demanding an 11 percent wage increase, six months paid maternity leave and improved transformation policies.
The union is expecting to give a briefing today to explain its grievances.
Meanwhile, CWU workers at MTN are also threatening to go on a strike over outsourced workers.
The union's General Secretary Aubrey Tshabalala says: "The nation knows that we're taking our third week into a fully blown strike at Telkom. We'll be reflecting on MTN and CWU's faceoff at the Labour Court on 31 August. We'll also be reflecting much in detail into that issue."
