South Africa's striking NUMSA union said on Tuesday it would take the latest offer from the main employers' group to its members on Wednesday, possibly ending a week-old stoppage that has hit car manufacturers. A spokesman for the engineering and metal workers' union did not elaborate on the offer. The labor ministry spokesman Mokgadi Pela told Reuters "The differences are in terms of fractions." Pretoria has intervened to try to break a deadlock that is costing industry an estimated $28 million a day. Africa's most advanced economy is struggling to recover from a series of work stoppages that have eroded business confidence. The strike by more than 200,000 NUMSA members, asking for increases of between 12 to 15 percent, follows a crippling walkout by platinum miners that lasted five months. less
