Thousands of commuters are again expected to be stranded Monday morning due to the continuing nationwide bus strike.

Trade unions Satawu and Numsa say they will intensify their action Monday after wage talks with employers deadlocked on Friday.

The unions were demanding a 10% pay increase and the employers are offering seven, but the gap has since narrowed.

Satawu spokesperson, Zanele Sabela, says there are also other points of contention.

“The sticking point is that they refusing on the conditions of work which include the dual driver, the night shift and in-sourcing of some workers into the bargaining council, like cleaners. They are provided for as per the bargaining agreement so we don’t understand why employers wouldn’t want to in-source.”
