2010-07-08 16:39

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.

    14%...what drugs did they steal from the luggage and consume?! Last ditch chance to f**k up all of the good that has been achieved with the SWC! (Although King Shaka certainly gave it a good try last night!!..."we asked them to move the jets but they would not"....is this the same wanker that controls taxis!!!) Come on guys, appreciate your work, dont keep stretching your hand forward in the ANC salute!!

    thats the trouble with all the above inflation increases - the workers think its a never ending party that the govt is scared to stop. someone has to dig their heels in and risk a long strike , to break the cycle
