Untu strike on the cards at Prasa


The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) is facing yet more trouble, following an announcement by the United National Transport Union (Untu) that it will be consulting its members at the agency on whether or not to embark on industrial action. 

The union claims that Prasa has failed to fulfil commitments made in a wage agreement signed last year. Untu has already received permission for an indefinite work stoppage.

According to Eyewitness News, Untu spokesperson Sonja Carsten set a date for when the decision on whether or not to strike will be announced.

“This will be finalised on 24th of January after which we’ll announce the decision from our members,” she said.

She warned that the strike would affect Prasa nationwide.

“The strike of Prasa will bring all branches across the country to a complete halt,” she said.
