The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) will hold a march to all the offices of the Retail Motor Industry (RMI) on October 27 to hand over memorandums of demands at each venue.
The RMI is an employer body representing many component manufacturers in the automotive industry.
Numsa says its members who fall under the RMI are upset over a wage agreement agreed to at the Motor Industries Bargaining Council (Mibco) last year but that has not been gazetted.
Workers who are employed by component manufacturers have not yet received the 8% increase, which was secured in January last year, the union alleges.
Numsa says Mibco should have met by now to endorse the agreement so that it can be gazetted with the Department of Employment and Labour.
Numsa represents about 70 000 workers in the motor sector and it is the majority union at the industry’s bargaining council.
The union’s picketing will take place at the RMI offices in Randburg, Pinetown and Bellvile, as well as at the Mibco offices in Randburg.
