satawu thumb medium90 101TimesLive reports that members of the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) marched on the office of the Transport Minister on Thursday demanding intervention into “rampant abuse of power” by e-toll management.  

The union accused the Road Traffic Infringement Agency and Centurion company Electronic Toll Collection of “flouting the law” by not affording Satawu representation for its members‚ despite a ruling by the CCMA in favour of the union.  This was said to be preventing the union from addressing workers’ grievances‚ which included salary disparities between workers doing the same jobs and deductions of 50% from the 13th cheques of workers who had been issued with written warnings.  “Employees are also concerned about the rampant abuse of power and maladministration by management who routinely show a flagrant disregard for the agency’s policies‚” the union’s statement indicated.  Allegations of nepotism and tribalism were also levelled at area managers who were said to have employed their friends into positions.
