New 2010 stadium threat


“We will spread the protest action to all other 2010 projects so that the message is loud and clear. Companies have agreed to pay only R500 for project bonuses over three months, and we want them to pay R1 500 a month,” said NUM spokesman Bonginkosi Mncwabe.

NUM and the Group Five-WBHO Consortium which is contracted to build Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium are deadlocked in their negotiations.

NUM which represents about 20% of the 1 200 construction workers on site are striking over bonuses, backpay and safety issues.
