White employees at Sasol to strike for inclusion in new share scheme

Members of Solidarity at Sasol in Secunda Mpumalanga will be embarking on strike on Tuesday.

A total of 83 percent of the members of the union have voted in favour of the strike to protest the company’s exclusion of white employees from an employee share ownership plan.

In the old scheme white workers were included, now with the new scheme; white workers are excluded. The frustration of the workers is that in the past they were included and now in the future, they are excluded.

Dirk Hermann, Deputy General Secretary of Trade Union Solidarity 

We will not approach the courts, this is a dispute of rights. The CCMA has said we can go on with the strike. We have the certificate to strike.

Dirk Hermann, Deputy General Secretary of Trade Union Solidarity 

This is a historic type of strike. Our members don't go out on strike but on this specific issue. It's about principle not about white or black issue. It's about what's right and wrong.

Dirk Hermann, Deputy General Secretary of Trade Union Solidarity 

Listen to how many votes for the strike they are looking to have by the end of the day...
