End in sight for transport strike

Oct 09 2012 11:26

Cape Town - Around 15 000 striking transport workers are expected to return to work on Wednesday, although that will not include the main transport union Satawu, the Road Freight Employers' Association said.

“Three of the unions have agreed to suspend strike action,” a spokesperson for the association said on Tuesday following negotiations.

She said the major labour group, the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu), was not party to the agreement, which was made with three smaller unions: the Transport and Allied Workers Union of South Africa, the Motor Transport Workers Union and the Professional Transport Workers Union.
