83 wage-related strikes were recorded in South Africa last year

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Casual Workers Advice Office 2023 Strike Barometer recorded 83 strikes in South Africa last year, primarily wage-related. The strikes recorded don’t include multiple demonstrations that took place at universities, hospitals, and the State Information Technology Agency. According to the barometer, the other main reason behind the strikes is the seeking of permanent jobs. The barometer recorded the longest strike from July until November, a total of 104 days, between the South African Municipal Workers Union and the City of Tshwane.
