August 11, 2010 at 7:05 am
South African auto workers began a strike Wednesday in Johannesburg, as part of their demand for better wages.
A spokesman for the National Union of Metalworkers says he expects 31,000 members to participate.
The union has rejected the employers’ initial offer of a seven-percent pay hike, while seeking a 15 percent raise for its membership.
The strike impacts production at a number of carmakers, which include Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Company.
