    Default Non violent NUMSA. What a joke.

    Had a visit from red shirted Numsa strikers at our works in Benoni today. Rampaged through the offices and works lifting briefcases, laptops and computers as well as smashing all the cars windows. Got into the garages and smashed the Harley's tail light and turn indicator as well as ripping the GPS off the anti-theft mounting. Took my helmet and gloves. Non violent my A$$. Police caught one up the road with two of our laptops - thanks for that. Bunch of thieving saboteurs of the economy. My once bright hope for this country is getting dimmer by the day.

    You are not alone, a friend of our a FM at a mining company in Germiston had the exact same experience.

    At least nobody got hurt?

    Some serious steps need to be taken against these criminals.

    The main reason why I dislike mass action intensely. It is just to easy for criminals to hide in the crowd.

    Unions will bring this country to it's knees. The economy cannot handle this much stupidity.

    True. There was a fair representation of squatter camp inhabitants with the NUMSA strikers. Seems that the union is allowing them to join in to do the dirty work and then stand back and say "it wasn't us".

    Yet when you have gatherings like the toy run, the e-toll protests, should anybody act out of line, the organisers are held liable, double standards?

    Yeah, it's a joke. Cops only come when the mob has left.

    Unions have already bought this country to its knees. They say that its all about the 'wekkas', but the union management are the only ones winning. Unfortunately they tell the government how it must be, and between the government leaching the cash cow to death, the unions will finish it off.

    Yeah, got blocked from leaving the offices for 2 and a half hours on Friday by them red shirted dunces.
    Costing me money as we are working short time and having to take leave. As soon as the leave is finished, it will be unpaid leave.

    I believe there is still some time to save what is left. Unfortunately the government does not see this as a "political" problem. This apart from the fact that most Political Parties promote specific unions and these unions are devoted (and much needed...) support groups. So basically the government would rather see the country go down than to "manage" their support base. Ironic is it not

    I really do pray that our Country will survive the current turmoil. I was born in the UK but have been here since I was a "lightie" and consider this my home. I never want to leave this Country but fortunately do have an out if necessary. Although it is something I never ever want to make use of.....
