Algoa Bus strike enters 23rd day - CCMA seeking resolution

OCTOBER 16, 2015

The current strike by Algoa Bus services staff, which entered its 23rd day on Friday, looks set to continue next week after another attempt at resolving it failed on Wednesday.

South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) spokesperson, Honest Sinama, on Thursday told local radio station, Algoa FM News, that the union met with the management at Algoa Bus in the presence of representantives from the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) - Eastern Cape.

The parties again reached an impasse - which how the strike began on 23 September.

The CCMA is, however, reportedly trying to find a way forward to break the deadlock.

Two attempts at resolving the strike last week did not materialise.

On Monday, thousands, including school children, had to find alternative means of getting to work as the new school term resumed.
