CAA tries to avert airport strike
Pretoria - The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) was locked in a meeting with SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) negotiators on Thursday afternoon to try to avert a strike over wage increments.
Spokesperson for the aviation regulator Kabelo Ledwaba confirmed that they had received a notice to strike from the union on Wednesday.
"We'll issue a formal statement after the meeting in case there's a new development. The meeting could see an agreement being reached before Friday's strike action," he said.
Workers were demanding 14 percent salary increase across the board while the CAA had put a nine percent conditional offer on the table.
