Cash-in-transit strike over: RFEA

2012-09-29 12:12

The strike in the cash-in-transit sector was over, the Road Freight Employers Association (RFEA) has said.

“The majority union in the cash-in-transit (sector), last night signed an agreement,” RFEA spokeswoman Magretia Brown-Engelbrecht said in a statement.

“This means that CIT employees will cease participation in the strike with immediate effect and are returning to duty.”

She said the agreement that was signed yesterday night was similar to the offer that the RFEA tabled to the unions on September 22 before the strike started.

Brown-Engelbrecht added that the talks between the RFEA, unions, cash-in-transit sector’s three companies and the Motor Transport Workers Unions continued today.

Freight logistics workers began their strike on Monday after employers and unions failed to reach an agreement on wages. Unions reverted to a 12% pay demand after rejecting a lower offer tabled by employers on Tuesday.

The RFEA had proposed a staggered increase of 8.5% effective from March, and a further 0.5% from September next year.
