Strikers issue ultimatum on offer by BCM
Striking Buffalo City Metro workers have threatened to intensify their action on Friday should the metro bosses not make them an offer on Wednesday.
This comes after ANC bosses in the province instructed BCM's political leadership to meet with the unions on Wednesday and "make an offer to the workers" in an effort to resolve the crippling strike by Friday.
The workers are demanding a payment of R100,000 per worker as an "apology" from BCM for the failure to fully implement the job evaluation process since last year.
SA Municipal Workers Union BCM secretary Zolani Ndlela said: "If the employer does not offer anything on the table today (Wednesday), when we sit at the general meeting tomorrow (Thursday) we will see which direction we are taking our strike to."
The unions are expected to have a meeting with BCM's political and administrative bosses on Wednesday afternoon...
