MTN South Africa steps up contingency plans for strike

Thursday 2 July 2015 | 11:02 CET | News
MTN South Africa says it has upped its contingency plans because of the continuing industrial action, in a bid to ensure normal operations, reports IT-Online. The company said the majority of MTN staff who embarked on strike action have come back to work and MTN has not entered into any agreement with the Communication Workers Union (CWU). Consequently, the strike action, initiated by CWU in May, has started to settle down, but has not come to an end.
