UNTUTMG Digital reports that a strike planned for 4 April by members of railway workers’ union Untu (United National Transport Union) has been suspended.  

This follows talks between the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) and Untu and the SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) on Wednesday.  Prasa spokesman Victor Dlamini said all parties had agreed that the matters that were the subject of a strike certificate issued to Untu were not insurmountable and that they could be resolved through negotiations.  The parties further agreed that they would participate in a resolution process that would take place from Monday to Wednesday next week.  In the event that the matters are not resolved in those three days, the parties agreed to engage for an additional period on 7 and 8 April.  Satawu indicated that it was not in support of a strike because it has full confidence in the bargaining forum process to resolve all outstanding issues.
