SANParksMaroela Media reports that the management of SANParks indicated on Monday that all of its employees who were supposedly going to commence a strike reported for work.  

SANParks reported on Friday that it had received an official strike notice from the Health & Other Services Personnel Trade Union of SA (Hospersa) that the union’s members would go on strike on Monday over deadlocked wage negotiations.  Hospersa is demanding a 9% salary increase, while management is apparently offering 6% plus 1%.  Janine Raftopoulos, head of communications at SANParks, indicated that they received a request from the CCMA to meet on Tuesday to try and resolve the dispute.  She also said that picketing rules still had to be finalised.  According to Raftopoulos, they were monitoring the situation closely and had contingency plans if needed.
