Strike-hit Continental Tyres to lay off entire shift

ONE of Nelson Mandela Bay’s biggest employers is cutting about 120 jobs after a month-long strike.

The blow to the Bay’s alreadystrained employment figures comes just six months after Continental Tyre SA (CTSA) workers were put on short time during the seven-week Numsa strike which affected the automotive industry countrywide.

Although CTSA workers returned to work at the weekend after the company and metalworkers’ union Numsa reached an agreement, job losses are now imminent at the New Brighton West tyre manufacturer due to the implementation of a new shift system. – Cindy Preller

    Good going guys!!!! Due to the greed of unions 120 people will be without work!I can see many industries following suit! The Platinum mining industry is going to shrink to a tiny mechanised set up! The unions are destroying South Africa.Meanwhile the ruling party looks on with their arms crossed doing exactly nothing as they are in cahoots with the unions.Moral of the story you can’t have the foxes guarding the chicken pen!You voted for them now you are going to have plenty of time to regret your decision!
