Over 450 members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) are on strike at Group Five at Durban harbour in Kwazulu Natal Province. The strike started on the 26th of May 2014.
The NUM demands are the following:
1. We demand that all our members must be paid R10 000 project bonus
2. We demand that all our members should knock off at 14h00 on Saturdays.
3. We demand that all our members must be represented by a Fulltime Shop Steward at the company.
"Our members are going to fight hard on the payment of the project bonus and we believe that Group Five can afford it. Our members are determined to strike at Group Five simply to deal with company's arrogance," said Bhekani Ngcobo, NUM Kwazulu Natal Regional Coordinator.
