South African Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (SATAWU) embarked on salary negotiations at the Road Accident Fund (RAF) today.
SATAWU is the only union representing 1 250 out of the total 2 200 workers at RAF since NUMSA was derecognised early this month, after it was found to have attained its recognition status unduly.
A three-day session ending 21 April is set to finalise the salary negotiations..
The following are some the demands workers have mandated us to pursue:
15% across-the-board salary increase
RAF to raise its contribution towards employees’ medical aid from 50% to 80%
RAF to set-up its own medical aid scheme that will provide cover for employees beyond retirement
SATAWU is determined to obtain the best deal for its members despite speculation that the Road Accident Fund is in a dire financial situation.
