Prasa goes to labour court

2010-12-03 14:59

Metrorail unions have been served with a notice that the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) will apply to the Labour Court to have a Cape Town strike declared unlawful, officials said today.

Utatu general secretary Chris de Vos said the notice was served on Utatu and the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu).
“Whatever the court rules in this regard will be respected by our union and members,” said De Vos.

The unions embarked on strike action in Cape Town earlier this week to protest against changes to their shift roster.

Most Utatu members had returned to work by yesterday, but Satawu indicated its members would strike again on Sunday.

Prasa spokeswoman Nana Zenani confirmed the Labour Court would hear their application on Friday afternoon.
