The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) congratulates United National Transport Union (UNTU) on their victory after the Labour court ruled in their favour and ordered the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) to honour obligations to the 2020 salary/wage settlement agreement.
PRASA will need to make payment for each UNTU member, a 5% wage increase in terms of the Wage Agreement concluded on 23 October 2020 with effect from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The two-year-long battle to get UNTU members that is due to them has finally paid off, but the war is far from over. However, FEDUSA would like to thank UNTU for their determination to fight until the very last end.
It is disappointing that UNTU had to go to lengths in their fight for an agreement that was not honoured by PRASA. Therefore, FEDUSA calls on PRASA to accept the Labour Court’s judgment and implement it accordingly.
