uShakaIOL News reports that Durban's uShaka Marine World is expected to be closed from Monday due to a strike over wages. On Friday, staff issued management with a 48 hour notice to strike after a stalemate had been reached during wage negotiations.

On Friday, uShaka CEO Ndabo Khoza said that over the last few months, uShaka Marine World had been engaged in salary negotiations with the union representing the bargaining unit employees. "Unfortunately, the parties have not been able to come to a settlement and this led to the matter being referred to the CCMA despite the employer’s best endeavours. The commencement of the industrial action will have an impact on our ability to deliver on our promise to providing a quality guest experience. In light of this, the entity has considered the business risks and has resolved to close the park to the public for the corresponding period of the industrial action," Khoza indicated. Khoza went on to say: “The employees are also expected to exercise their rights peacefully in accordance with the law and to respect the employees who have opted not to participate in the industrial action,” he said.
