Johannesburg - Comair and the trade union UASA confirmed on Wednesday that they have reached settlement after a week-long strike by Comair’s airport ground staff.

Over the weekend, Comair implemented what it called a defensive lock-out of its airport staff, who have been on strike since April 13 2016. This led to UASA approaching the SA Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on April 18 for an urgent intervention.

At the time of deadlock UASA demanded a 30% increase over three years, while Comair offered an unconditional 7.5% increase for each of the three years - therefore, 22.5% over the three year period.
