Johannesburg - The striking Numsa union said on Tuesday it would take the “latest” wage offer from the main employers' group to its engineering and metals members on Wednesday, possibly ending a week-old stoppage that has hit car manufacturers.

“These regional meetings are intended to bring striking NUMSA members on board with respect to the latest SEIFSA offers and to obtain mandates with respect to what should constitute a resolution of the industry strike,” it said in a statement.

A Numsa spokesman did not elaborate on details of the offer. - Reuters
