CT cableway strike won't affect operations - management
TMACC management says they are still awaiting a response from the union on their improved offer.
CAPE TOWN - The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) says a strike among some of its employees won't affect operations.
There's still no an agreement over wage increase demands. Striking workers are demanding a 15% pay hike, but employers are offering between eight and 10%.
TMACC management says they are still awaiting a response from the union on an improved offer.
Managing director Wahida Parker says the new offer is an 8% increase for workers who earn more than R10,000 a month and 10% for those earning less than R10,000.
She says even if the strike goes ahead, the cableway will be open.
"We must settle this in the next couple of days. It is important not only for us but also for our staff. It is not fun to work in an environment where there is so much uncertainty."
Parker says they want to sort out wage issues quickly as the summer tourist season is approaching.
