Johannesburg - The Motor Transport Workers' Union (MTWU) workers in the trucking industry would continue to strike despite reports to the contrary, it said on Tuesday.

On Tuesday morning, the Road Freight Employers Association said in a statement that the MTWU, the Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Tawusa) and the Professional Transport Workers' Union (PTAWU) had agreed to suspend their strike while wage negotiations continued.

"That's a big 'No'," said MTWU spokesperson Dirk White. "MTWU hasn't suspended the strike. The letter that was circulated was done without a mandate from us."

The RFEA claimed that the three unions, representing about 15,000 workers, had agreed to call off their strike because of "sufficient common ground" in wage negotiations.

This would have left the SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union, and its 28 000 striking workers, on its own.

White said the MTWU's 9500 workers would remain on strike until a wage settlement was reached.
