SATAWU and G4S cash solutions return to negotiating table

EWN reports that the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) and G4S cash solutions are heading to the negotiating table 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 11th hour.

This comes as the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA)  has called the two parties back for talks on Saturday to find the middle ground. SATAWU is demanding 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.
