SAA makes ‘revised’ offer to avert strike action


1 min read

South African Airways (SAA) has confirmed that it has made a new wage offer to the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) in an effort to avert possible strike action by its members.

In a statement issued by the airline, it warned that its operations could be disrupted if the wage disagreement between SAA Technical (SAAT) and the labour unions are not resolved.

The union which is demanding a 15% increase, while the employer is offering 3%, threatened to launch its planned strike today (4 September), however upon request from the airline, asked that it be postponed pending new wage talks.

Acting SAA CEO Musa Zwane said that the airline has improved its offer to the union and feedback should be received from the union this afternoon.

The airline added that in the event that the strike takes place, it will provide all possible and necessary assistance to customers where needed.
