UNTUBusiness Report writes that the United National Transport Union (Untu) said Transnet was being malicious after it blatantly disregarded a court ruling compelling it to not force employees to take leave in December.  

Earlier this month, Judge Christina Prinsloo overturned Transnet’s bid to force employees who were not restricted to operational requirements to take leave during December.  However, on Tuesday the union in a statement said that “the company decided to cause havoc amongst employees providing them with wrong information about the leave issue.”  Untu said it would approach the labour court next week to interdict Transnet from enforcing leave during the festive season, if no amicable solution was found in a meeting set for 23 November.
