S.Africa petroleum group says union delays talks

JOHANNESBURG, July 15 (Reuters) – The South African Petroleum Industry Association said on Friday the largest of the unions in a strike that has caused fuel shortages in Africa’s largest economy was delaying talks to Monday.

“CEPPWAWU (Chemical Energy Paper Printing Wood and Allied Workers Union), the union with the majority of members on strike, has disappointingly indicated that it refuses to meet on Saturday and is only prepared to return to negotiations on Monday,” the association said in a statement.

It said three other unions had agreed to meet with an independent negotiator. CEPPWAWU officials could not immediately be reached for comment. (Reporting by Ed Stoddard; Editing by Jon Herskovitz)
