A strike by SA Airways technical staff affiliated to the SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) will continue, the union said on Tuesday.

Engineers and technicians would carry on picketing outside SAA technical's premises in Kempton Park, calling for a double-digit increase, said general secretary Zenzo Mahlangu.

"There are still negotiations going on and we will continue with the strike up until we find a solution with the management of SAA."

Technicians and maintenance employees began striking on August 26, demanding higher salaries.

Satawu has rejected the 6.5 percent SAA offered. Solidarity and the Aviation Union of SA (Ausa) accepted the deal.
