Sars strike

Nehawu spokesperson, Khaya Xaba says there's been no communication from Sars representatives since the strike started on Thursday.

A workers' strike at Sars has entered a second day with the two unions, Nehawu and PSA threatening to intensify the industrial action if management does not respond to their demands.

Workers are demanding an 11.4% increase but Sars is offering 7%.

Nehawu spokesperson, Khaya Xaba says they are happy with the discipline shown by workers and confirms that the strike will continue into the coming week.

He says there hasn't been any engagement with the employer since the strike started on Thursday.

As days go by and nothing is said, we will be left with no option but to intensify the strike. But for now, we are happy with the way it's panning out and we are hopeful that management will engage us very soon.

Khaya Xaba, Spokesperson - Nehawu

We are available to meet and we are available to listen to any improved offer.

Khaya Xaba, Spokesperson - Nehawu

The ball is in the hands of the employer. They need to move with speed to protect the economy of this country and to ensure that everything returns to normality and workers return to work.
