Passengers stranded as national bus strike revs towards third week

Labour unions involved in a bus strike, which has left thousands of commuters stranded across South Africa, were meeting on Monday to map the way forward as the protest neared its third week. South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) spokesperson Zanele Sabela told the African News Agency in Pretoria that employers in the sector had effectively given striking workers an ultimatum, which unions were unhappy about.
