Strike talks are premature - SAA

Jun 24 2013 19:30
Cape Town - South African Airways (SAA) said on Monday in a statement that pay negotiations with labour unions, which are facilitated by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) are still on track.

It was responding to media reports claiming that protest action is looming.

The SABC reported on Sunday that workers threatened to go on strike if their salary demands were not met.

The United Association of South Africa (UASA) and the South African Transport and Allied Worker's Union (Satawu) represent the majority of SAA's cabin crew and ground staff.

"It is both premature and unfortunate for UASA to suggest that negotiations have or are about to reach a deadlock."

The airline said that the negotiations are sensitive and treated with the necessary confidentiality.

It also dismissed claims of offering a 3% increase.

"The insinuation that our offer currently stands at 3% must be rejected as it is misleading and has a potential to create discomfort among staff and derail negotiations".
