Trade union Solidarity has confirmed Sasol has signed its memorandum at the company's plant in the Free State.
Almost 1,000 members have been protesting at the plant against the new Khanyisa staff scheme, claiming it excludes white employees.
More than 6,000 white Sasol employees affiliated with Solidarity are planning to escalate their demand for inclusion with a national shutdown on Thursday.
Solidarity says Sasol hasn’t initiated discussions with the union yet.
Chief executive Dirk Hermann says they’re demanding the Sasol scheme be aligned with the Mining Charter.
“The draft Mining Charter that was published in the Government Gazette makes it very clear and the reason for that is that you don’t divide workers by race, and that is the simple demand, bring Sasol in line with the Mining Charter.”
