A strike by the SA Municipal Workers Union was set to continue on Monday at Johannesburg Meter Services, the meter-reading company said on Sunday.
“The issue at hand is one of mutual interest, an inability to reach agreement in relation to remuneration for the 2011/2012 year,” said spokesman Mike Hockey in a statement.
He said the issue of remuneration was “something which can and will be resolved given goodwill on both sides”.
Twenty-seven of the company’s 52 employees have been on strike since Thursday.
The union’s spokesman Tahir Sema said on Thursday that JMS had offered a wage increase of R800 at a meeting with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration, but was now offering only R500.
Hockey said he could not comment on the union’s claims as negotiations were continuing.
