Dieter Horni, of Continental SA's MD, said: "We respect the rights of employees to express their grievances through industrial action but  protracted action has a detrimental effect not only on production but also on the business.

"We look forward to an amicable agreement being reached with the National Union of Metalworkers of SA."

Continental said: "We are able to continue with limited production and continue to meet the needs of original-equipment manufacturers as well as the replacement market.

Continental Tyre SA employs more than 1600 people.
