saa thumb medium95 76ANA reports that South African Airways (SAA) warned on Tuesday that its operations might be disrupted after one of its labour unions gave notice of intention to embark on industrial action at its aircraft maintenance unit.  

SAA Technical (SAAT) received the notice at the weekend following the tabling of a wage increase proposal.  The airline indicated that parties have held several other meetings since the notice was served and were expected to meet again on Wednesday morning.  The airline will advise after the meeting with the unions on whether the strike would, in fact, take place or the extent to which the strike will affect operations, if at all.  As a result of the intended strike notification, the airline said it has begun to review and update its contingency measures to ensure business continuity and to minimise the impact of strike action on its operations.
