Johannesburg - Talks aimed at resolving a three-week strike in the automotive components sector have deadlocked, the National Union of Metalworkers of SA said on Saturday.
“The talks deadlocked shortly after midnight and we shall be interacting (with employers) during weekend,” deputy general secretary Karl Cloete said.
The talks began on Friday afternoon, after the union's petrol attendant strike was resolved.
On Friday, Numsa signed off on a wage deal that secured an 11.6
percent increase for petrol attendants for this year, a nine percent increase for next year, and another nine percent increase for the following year.
This meant petrol attendants would receive a wage increase of R2 per hour as of October 2.
They were expected back at work on Monday.
