Road Accident FundThe New Age reports that the Road Accident Fund (RAF) said on Thursday that the latest allegations by the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) were evidence that the union would rather preoccupy itself with maligning the fund rather than co-operating to create “conducive conditions”.  

RAF acting CE Lindelwa Jabavu was responding to Numsa being granted a ‘strike certificate’ from the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).  Numsa claims that workers at RAF’s Johannesburg offices have been exposed to harmful working conditions.  Jabavu dismissed Numsa’s claims and said they “were blatantly false and will not derail us from our mandate to cover, compensate and rehabilitate vehicle accident victims”.
