Shots fired at DUT

DUT workers, students shot by guards amid strike

The labour strike had the Durban University of Technology turned violent on Wednesday morning, when the institution's security guards allegedly shot at striking workers with rubber bullets.

The strike which has entered its second week has reached a deadlock with management offering 6.25% increment and no bonus, while unions want at least 8.25%. 

Union members, who spoke to The Mercury, said security guards opened fire on them when they were leaving Cane Growers Hall, after being briefed by union leaders on the day’s plan and that students were also reportedly shot.
