Work Minister Mildred Oliphant reported on Friday evening that the transport strike is presently over as the larger part of unions have achieved an assention.

Prior on Friday the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) stressed that it has not consented to arrangements with any businesses in the transport traveler segment.

“We just consult through the Bargaining Council and we wish to re-repeat that it is Numsa approach that lone the general secretary can consent to arrangements in the interest of the union,” it said in an announcement.

“In any case, we anticipate our engagement with the Minister of Labor and the businesses today. We seek after a rapid determination to the debate.”

News24 revealed before that Autopax, the administrator of Translux and City to City, has affirmed it has consented to a wage arrangement which will adequately observe its administrations operational on Friday.

Some routes may still experience problems as services return to operation.

Workers in the passenger bus sector on Wednesday went on strike, demanding a 15% wage increase and better working conditions. Numsa said the intervention of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration had not addressed the union’s grievances and it resolved to call a strike.
