Transport pay talks continue

Johannesburg - Parties involved in a national transport strike are scheduled to continue wage talks on Thursday evening, the employer said.

Road Freight Association spokesperson Magretia Brown-Engelbrecht said separate talks took place with a Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) facilitator on Wednesday.

"Parties engaged yesterday with the CCMA facilitator separately. This process will continue today. A joint session has been scheduled for early this evening," she said in a statement.

On Wednesday three trade unions, jointly claiming to represent 15 000 workers, agreed to adjust their pay demand in an attempt to end a protracted strike by thousands of truck drivers.

The SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu), which represents about 28 000 workers in the strike, is not included in the unions' new agreement.

Several truck drivers have been injured and one killed in violence related to the strike, now in its third week.
