The United National Transport Union (UNTU) has no other option but to ask its members to embark on an indefinite strike, to the detriment of millions of commuters, after the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) refused to increase its final wage offer of 6%.
The United National Transport Union (UNTU) has issued a call on all UNTU Trade Union Representatives (TURS) in terms of UNTU’S Constitution to obtain a mandate from UNTU members at their respective workplaces.
The final wage offer from Prasa is a 6% salary increase with effect from 1 April 2017.
UNTU’s mandate from its membership is a 10% salary increase as well as;
- a R700 medical allowance,
- a R50 risk allowance,
- an increase to R10 on the night shift allowance
- an increase to R120 on the standby allowance per shift.
- an increase to R50.00 on the “Book-off Allowance” per shift.
