South Africa fears continued strike by Cape Town port workers

The number of strikers in the port of Cape Town and the railway of South Africa continues to grow, which could worsen the situation with the export of minerals, reported on October 10.

“Not all ports and freight railways will be open today,” said Bushi Mawuso, CEO of Business Leadership South Africa.

Recall that on October 6, the United National Transport Union, the main trade union organization of the state-owned company Transnet SOC, announced the start of a strike.

Protesters held a march near Transnet facilities in the Port of Cape Town. Work at the container terminal has stopped. The strikers said they were not satisfied with the wages.
