2013 ROAD FREIGHT INDUSTRY NEGOTIATIONS TAWUSA, PTWU & MTWU SUSPENDS STRIKE
RFA(RFEA) MEMBERS TAKE NOTE
The three aforementioned unions have advised us today that they will be suspending their participation in the strike as of 16h00 this afternoon and all their members will be returning to work tomorrow.
The three unions jointly represent approximately 15 000 employees. Please find attached a letter from TAWUSA in this regard.
Employers are advised to allow members of these unions to resume duty. Employers should also bear in mind that the strike in which these unions’ members participated is protected and as such, bar the principle of no-work-no-pay applying during such participation, members of these unions returning to duty may not be subjected to victimisation or any adverse treatment by the employer.
The RFEA team welcomes this initiative. It follows that SATAWU is the single remaining union still participating in the strike.
