SASOL: 55,055 -1545 (-2.73%)
South African union to begin strike by white workers at Sasol
JOHANNESBURG, Sept 2 (Reuters) - South Africa's mainly white
Solidarity union will begin a strike on Monday at petrochemicals
firm Sasol over a share ownership scheme offered
exclusively for black staff.
"We intend to switch off a different section of Sasol each
day by means of well-laid and strategic plans," the union said
in a statement.
Under black economic empowerment rules, South African
companies are required to meet quotas on black ownership,
employment and procurement as part of a drive to reverse decades
of exclusion under apartheid.
