Teti Traffic's Operations Manager Perumal Pillay says, "We are hoping to have some form of settlement on the table."
It says it is due to meet with striking workers at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on Wednesday to discuss their differences.
Meanwhile, Teti Traffic is meeting with its legal team to file an urgent court interdict to stop its striking workers from protesting on the highways.
South African Transport and Allied Workers Union's Zanele Sabela said, "It was a peaceful protest, basically they're continuing to be arrogant as they've been throughout the negotiations."
