SANParksNews24 reports that SANParks is to postpone bookings for 2018 for at least one week in case employees continue their strike, a spokesperson said on Monday.  

"It is just a precaution in case the strike continues.  The call centres will be overloaded," Janine Raftopoulos said.  Bookings for 2018 were supposed to open on 25 July, but would now open on 1 August.    Last week, the Health and Other Services Personnel Trade Union of SA (Hospersa) declared a nationwide strike at all SANParks facilities.  But the union suspended the strike over the weekend pending further negotiations.  "We will see if the negotiations are meeting our demands," Hospersa spokesperson Kevin Halama said.  Hospersa members want a 9% wage increase for 2018, while SANParks is offering 6%.
