TRADE union Sol­i­dar­ity said yes­ter­day that it had been cleared to call for a strike at en­ergy firm Sa­sol over an em­pow­er­ment scheme it said un­fairly ex­cluded white work­ers. The Com­mis­sion for Con­cil­i­a­tion, Me­di­a­tion and Ar­bi­tra­tion is­sued a cer­tifi­cate to Sol­i­dar­ity which al­lows its mem­bers to strike legally, the union rep­re­sent­ing mostly skilled work­ers said. Sol­i­dar­ity chief ex­ec­u­tive Dirk Her­mann said the com­pany was re­spon­si­ble for “bla­tant dis­crim­i­na­tion against loyal Sa­sol em­ploy­ees”. The union said it would seek a man­date from mem­bers to be­gin a strike. – Reuters
