TSAM’s Leo Kok said the company’s management was locked in talks with workers, as well as leaders of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, in an attempt to understand the driving force behind the strike, and to resolve the situation.
The strike appeared to be linked to wage demands.
Toyota on Monday morning opened its new R363-million parts distribution warehouse in Gauteng, in what TSAM president and CEO Dr Johan van Zyl said was the first big money to be spent in a fresh multibillion-rand investment cycle by the Japanese manufacturer.
