sapuEWN reports that the 10111 call centre strike is set to intensify with the South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) joining the industrial action.  Workers will picket across the country on Friday.  

In Gauteng, they will gather at the police headquarters in Midrand where they will reiterate their demand for a salary increase.  The SA Policing Union's (Sapu’s) Oscar Skommere indicated that the union was pleased that Saftu had decided to join the picket and added:  “The support from other federations will give us support and the more we come in numbers, the more results we will get.”  Call centre agents say they can no longer accept being underpaid and that they will now remain on an indefinite strike after negotiations at the CCMA failed.
