South African Oil Strike to Continue Today, Labor Union Says

July 20 (Bloomberg) — Oil workers in South Africa, who are in the second week of a nationwide strike over pay, will continue their industrial action today while they consider their next move in resolving the dispute.

Talks between unions and employers are expected to continue tomorrow, Clement Chitja, a spokesman for the Chemical, Energy, Paper, Printing, Wood and Allied Workers Union, said by mobile phone today.

The strike, which started on July 11, has led to gasoline shortages at gas stations owned by companies including Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Petroliam Nasional Bhd’s Engen Ltd. unit.
