PRETORIA, July 13 — The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) is on Sunday expected to officially announce whether it will accept the latest wage increase offer.
Employers’ body the Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of South Africa (Seifsa) says five other smaller unions have already accepted its offer.
Wage negotiations started four months ago.
However, Numsa members embarked on a strike after the negotiations deadlocked.
The union is demanding wage increases of between 12% and 15% but the employers are offering 10%.
The federation has warned that if its offer is not accepted, it will be withdrawn.
Numsa will hold a media briefing at which it will announce its decision.
