Construction workers on strike

July 09, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Thousands of South African construction workers went on an indefinite strike at stadiums being built for the 2010 World Cup.

Workers are demanding a 13% pay increase while employers are offering 10.4%.

The strike could delay completion of projects such as the Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg and stadiums in Cape Town and Durban.

The venues must be completed by December to meet deadlines set by the game's ruling body. The tournament kicks off in 2010.
