JOHANNESBURG, June 26 (Reuters) - South Africa's largest union said on Thursday that 220,000 of its members will down tools from July 1 in a strike that will hit sectors including engineering, communications and automotive components.
The NUMSA union, which represents metal workers and other artisans, said in a statement that the strike over wage demands was "inevitable." (Reporting by Zandi Shabalala; Writing by Ed Stoddard; Editing by Joe Brock)
