Plastic Industry: Industrial Action Update

Oct 11, 2018



Dear Plastics Industry employer

As per our communique yesterday, NUMSA has indicated that they intend embarking on strike action in the Plastics Sector as of 15 October 2018.

We have already obtained legal advice on this issue and intend on approaching the Labour Court in order to have the strike interdicted.

However, we have been advised that we will only be able to set the matter down to be heard on 17 October 2018.

Therefore, should Plastics Sector employees embark on strike action before this date, employers will need to manage the situation until the Labour Court has ruled on the matter.

Kindly contact our HOTLINE on 086 016 3272 for any assistance in this regard.

Kind Regards
Jaco Swart
National Collective Bargaining Coordinator

We are all in this together.
