boardroomtableEWN reports that the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) and G4S cash solutions were due to head back to the negotiating table on Saturday to avert a nationwide strike action.

G4S employees countrywide were expected to down tools on Friday, but their planned industrial action was postponed at the eleventh hour. This as the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) called the two parties back for talks on Saturday to try and find some middle ground. Satawu is demanding that the company bring back its retrenched members. "The union wishes to clarify that the strike is not cancelled but rather postponed as the CCMA has applied Section 150 to find consensus between labour and management. We are meeting tomorrow [Saturday] at the CCMA with the commissioner," said Satawu spokesperson Amanda Tshemese.
