No end to Prasa strike

Members of the National Transport Movement are still fighting for recognition from Prasa.

JOHANNESBURG - There seems to be no end to a strike by employees at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) as talks between unions and the agency remain deadlocked.

National Transport Movement (NTM) members in Gauteng have been on strike for almost a month.

They are demanding recognition and organisational rights from the agency.

Since then, Prasa has laid criminal charges against the NTM after four trains were torched.

The angency has also called for a probe into the union's involvement in a train accident in Mamelodi, Pretoria, earlier this month which left about 300 people injured.

NTM General Secretary Craig Nte said, “Prasa is currently not talking to us.

“They have withdrawn from a CCMA meeting where recommendations were made that we should engage into a verification process.”
