satawu thumb medium90 101Fin24 reports that the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) announced today that the strike at traffic incidents management company Teti Traffic was over.  

Workers would be reporting for work on Monday.  Satawu members downed tools on 3 May, with workers claiming they had not received a wage increase in four years.  Teti Traffic manages all traffic incidents including clearing up accident scenes on behalf of the SA National Roads Agency (Sanral).  Workers will receive a 7% increase across the board backdated from 1 January 2016.  A minimum wage of R5,250 will also apply from that date.  But, the company was not able to agree to establishment of medical aid and provident funds as its contract with Sanral comes to an end in December this year.  The terms of a Full Time Shop Steward Agreement must be worked out by the end of August.
