satawu thumb medium90 101SABC News reports that thousands of commuters in the Hammanskraal area, north of Pretoria, will be stranded again on Tuesday as the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) continues with its bus strike.  

Last week, striking workers prevented about 700 busses from operating in and around four provinces.  Drivers are demanding that the busses be replaced and their working conditions be improved.  Satawu’s Sandy Motlhakeng said they met with management, and came to an agreement that a tender for new or rented busses be advertised within a week.  He added:  “If maybe we have the document at our disposal, as the organisation we are going put a strike on hold.  If that document does not appear in any of the newspapers, automatically we are going to continue with the strike.”
