JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa is threatening massive strike action.

This follows a stay-away from work last week by disgruntled workers operating the Areyeng bus services.

They are demanding an increase in travel allowances for members working those buses in Tshwane.

Numsa says it's dealing with a hostile employer.

"We should not even be on strike, the irony of a transport company not providing transport for workers is quite glaring in this situation," said Numsa's Phakamile Hlubi-Majola.

"This could easily be resolved if these agencies were to allocate one of their buses to transport workers to and from work."
