Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan wants to join the Labour Court battle by the National Union of Metal Workers of SA (NUMSA) and the SA Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) against a backpay settlement offered to South African Airways (SAA) members by his department.

NUMSA and SACCA intend to make an urgent application to the court in Johannesburg on 28 January to have the backpay deal that was offered declared unlawful or unfair. The unions want payment to their SAA members made within seven days, if their application is granted.

SAA, as well as the state-owned airline's joint-business rescue practitioners Les Matuson and Siviwe Dongwana, are named as the respondents in the case. Gordhan, in his capacity as minister, wants to be joined as respondent.
