NOTICE OF STRIKE ACTION
Dear Plastics Industry employer
The negotiations within the Plastics Sector, which culminated in an agreement with Solidarity, have not been concluded with the remaining trade unions.
On 9 October 2018 NUMSA served a notice of its intention to embark on strike action in this Sector as from 6 AM on Monday, 15 October 2018.
The main demand from NUMSA is that the Plastics Sector must be included in the SEIFSA/NUMSA main agreement and employees in this Sector should be entitled to the same terms and conditions as employees covered by the SEIFSA/NUMSA Steel Sector main agreement.
In light of the fact that we believe that such a strike will be unprotected, legal action is considered.
In the interim, Plastic Sector employers are advised to prepare for possible strike action.
We will keep members abreast of developments in this regard.
