One day protest action at SANParks on 20 September 2019


1 min read

According to official information received from two of the three recognized organised labour unions, the planned protest action is only scheduled for one day, Friday, 20 September 2019 with operations expected to be back to normality the following day. The protest action will be conducted specifically in the Kruger National Park, Paul Kruger Gate with staff from other parks encouraged to withdraw labour.

To minimize any disruptions in the delivery of service to the guests due to the withdrawal of labour, SANParks would like to assure its guests that contingency plans are in place and will be activated with immediate effect in all parks.

Guests are requested to note that the one-day protest action will be focused at the Paul Kruger Gate where management will receive a memorandum of grievance from organized labour. All other entrance gates to the Kruger National Park and other parks will be operational as normal. It is for this reason that guests are advised not to cancel any bookings as a consequence of a one-day planned protest action announced by the two unions.

Should the CCMA grant organised labour permission to embark on a protracted strike action more information will be communicated.

SANParks would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused due to the planned protest action in KNP or withdrawal of labour in other parks.
