SA Warned Of Another National Shutdown

South Africa faces a national shutdown next Tuesday.

Unions affiliated with three major federations — Cosatu, Fedusa and SAFTU — vow to bring public services to a halt after collapsed wage negotiations with the government.

Workers have rejected the government’s 3 percent increase, and the unions say their 6.5 percent compromise is now off the table.

They have resorted to their initial demand of a 10 percent increase.
