South Africa: SATAWU Union makes some criticisms against the SA labour union, SATAWU.…”With the average security earning R1500 a month the strike it will take a striker 10 months to earn back the wages he may have lost if SATAWU manages to get the 11% increase. If SATAWU settles for 8.3% like the other unions it will take a year.”
