South African Airways (SAA) is pleased to announce that the labour union, SATAWU, has formally withdrawn, a notice of strike served on its maintenance subsidiary, SAA Technical.

 
“This means that the threat to cause possible operational instability as a result of industrial action has effectively been removed,” says SAA Spokesperson, Tlali Tlali.
Two labour unions, AUSA and NUMSA that enjoy recognition at SAA Technical, this morning signed an agreement with the employer accepting the revised offer presented by management on Wednesday morning.

 
A meeting was scheduled for this afternoon with SATAWU who also signed the agreement with the Company.

 
“We are truly encouraged by these developments and are grateful that we never experienced any business continuity glitches during the period when parties were in negotiations. We thank our customers and all stakeholders for their understanding and cooperation, especially in the period after the strike notice was served,” concludes Tlali.
