saa thumb medium95 76BusinessLive reports that SA Airways (SAA) cabin crew members are seeking to resume a strike over meal allowances as early as next week.  

The SA Cabin Crew Association (Sacca) says that it is waiting for the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) to issue a strike certificate on its demands for an increased meal allowance.  SAA had to cancel 50 flights during a one-day strike in April by cabin crew.  SAA won an interdict against the strike on the same day, but the court apparently made its ruling on technical grounds.  Meantime, the airline’s other unions said on Wednesday that they were also considering industrial action to pressure the airline into discussing wage increases that were due in April.  The United Association of SA’s (Uasa’s) Jannem Goussard said the union was seeking its own dispute due to lack of response from management, but they were not yet considering a strike.
