Petrol runs dry at some Gauteng garages

Petrol stations in northern Gauteng are running dry as workers affiliated with the Chemical Energy Paper Printing Wood and Allied Workers Union (Ceppwawu) are demanding a 9% salary increase.

Executive director of South African Petroleum Industry Association (Sapia), Avhafani Tshifularo, says Pretoria is the most affected area due to intimidation by striking workers.

Because strikers have decided to permanently be stationed there, with clear intimidation, we are forced because we can’t risk people going in and out under those situations. We don't have activities there.
