Plastics Industry: Deadlock reached

Oct 31, 2018




Dear Plastics Sector employer

The parties to the Plastic Negotiating Forum have not been able reach an agreement in order to settle the current dispute in the Plastics Sector.

The current industrial action will therefore continue and employer parties have indicated that they will not return to the negotiating table until all forms of violence and intimidation have ceased.

Employers, who wish to do so, may continue to enforce the lock-out should striking employees wish to return to work.

We will keep members abreast of developments in this regard.

Kind Regards
Jaco Swart
National Collective Bargaining Coordinator


Privileged and challenged to be South African.
We are all in this together.
