limusaANA reports that the Liberated Metalworkers Union of SA’s (Limusa’s) strike at Toyota Tsusho Africa in Durban, entered its fourth day on Monday.  

The Cosatu affiliate, which was established in November 2014 following the expulsion of Numsa from the federation, said that the protected industrial action was as a result of the company’s refusal to grant the union organisational rights as required by the Labour Relations Act.  The strike began last week Wednesday.  Toyota Tsusho Africa, a subsidiary of Toyota Tsusho Corp, operates as an automotive trading and supply-chain company.  Limusa secretary in KwaZulu-Natal, Mawonga Madolo, commented:  “It is clear that the company is disregarding the constitutional rights of workers to join and form trade unions of their choice.  The company is also not consistent on the recognition of trade unions in the workplace as it has recognised other unions which had the same membership as Limusa in the recent past.”
