Gautrain strike expected to end soon

Monday, August 13, 2018

Gauteng MEC for Roads and Transport, Ismail Vadi, is cautiously optimistic that the Gautrain strike will end soon.

The MEC said he has been briefed by the parties on extensive negotiations held between the Bombela Operating Company and the United National Transport Union (UNTU) over the weekend.

“It does seem that an agreement is within reach,” Vadi said in a statement.

Gautrain striking workers will be consulted on Monday on the proposed agreement and should a mandate be given by the employees the situation may be normalized soon thereafter.

“The Gauteng Provincial Government is pleased that the parties have gone back to the negotiating table to find one another,” he said. –
