Strike epidemic in South Africa

Gauteng province, South Africa
Gautrain bus drivers embarked on an illegal strike today, related to wage demands – joining public servants and automotive industry workers who have already downed tools earlier this month. The Gautrain operator, Bombela, said “The strike came without notice and in spite of an industry-wide wage agreement established earlier this year.”
The province experienced another wildcat strike by drivers last week, at Tshwane.
