A Pikitup truck was shot at on Wednesday in what's alleged to be worker intimidation and violence in the ongoing illegal strike.
702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi gave listeners an opportunity to share their concerns around the issue.
Listen to the conversation below:
The trade unions don't listen to the ANC, they are not interested in the big strategic picture, they become fixated with their members. Sooner or later, they need to be taken on.— Bruce, caller in Randburg
Some of these strikes could have been managed and contained much better and sooner. I'm a union member, I've been on strike before and I've seen how management responds to the demands of workers.— Lesele, caller in Sharpeville
Employers don't honour legislation that governs the workers and institutions that are set up to make sure our rights are respected ...The things that we are enduring are so bad that sometimes it's better to throw garbage in the streets. Workers are going through hell in these democratic times.— Sindi, caller in Centurion
