SAA still dealing with delays in wake of strike
Workers affiliated to the South African Cabin Crew Association (Sacca) demonstrated outside Airways Park in Kempton Park on Wednesday.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Airways (SAA) says it’s still experiencing delays following a strike by its cabin crew.
Workers affiliated to the South African Cabin Crew Association (Sacca) demonstrated outside Airways Park in Kempton Park on Wednesday, demanding an increase in their international meal allowances.
This forced the national carrier to cancel 32 domestic and international flights.
SAA obtained a court interdict forcing employees to abandon their strike until June.
Sacca’s president Zazi Nsibanyoni-Anyiam says it will be heading to the Labour Court on Friday to urgently appeal the court interdict.
“We got the papers around 2:05am so there was a lot we had to work through. Also the fact that the strike was protected, we had a certificate for non-resolution, served the company notice on time and complied with provisions of the act.”
