Numsa embark on protected strike

About 480 members of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) have embarked on a protected strike at the Toyota Boshoku Prospecton Plant in Durban – an independent supplier of seats and door panels – bringing production to a standstill.

South Africa’s largest vehicle manufacturer said in a statement the strike was not instigated or supported by employees of Toyota South Africa Motors.

Earlier this month, production at the Prospecton plant was halted for four days when Toyota South Africa Motors workers affiliated with Numsa downed tools over wages.

The plant is involved in the assembly of Toyota passenger cars, bakkies and the Hino truck range.
