Mbombela Stadium workers down tools again

accreditation

The workers are demanding an almost double wage increase, from R10 an hour to R19 an hour.

They claim that their wages are not commensurate with workers at other 2010 Soccer World Cup stadiums.

The workers at the stadium have been engaged in sporadic strike action since the start of the construction in that stadium.

The management of the construction company has refused to comment.
