LIMUSA Strikes in Toyota Tsusho Africa
23 October 2017

Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (LIMUSA) in now on the fourth day of a protected industrial action at Toyota Tsusho in South Gate Business Park in Durban which stated on the 18th October 2017. This action is as a result of the company refusal to grant LIMUSA organisational rights as required by the Labour Relations Act. This after the union has engaged the company and further referred the matter to CCMA.

The strike is proceeding indefinitely as workers are firm behind the demand of recognition to the union of their choice. The company has failed to provide any tangible reasons for their continued refusal to recognise LIMUSA. It is clear that the company is disregarding the constitutional rights of workers to join and form trade union of their choice.

The company is also not consistent on the recognition of trade unions in the workplace as it has recognised other union which had the same membership as LIMUSA in the recent past.

We calling on our members to be united behind their demands and conduct themselves peaceful manner. We note acts provocation and fabrication on part of management and we calling on our members not to allow themselves to be provoked.
