Your letter dated 4th October 2022 with the heading Notice of impending strike action refers.
On the 3rd October 2022, we served Transnet with the forty-eight hours (48) notice for strike that will commence on Monday the 10th October 2022.
When you calculate the days, we have complied with the seven (7) days period before we commence strike.
As the result the notice period is in accordance with the LRA and all applicable legislations.
We have balloted our members on all offers made by Transnet, and majority of our members are in favour of the strike.
We have sent the Transnet Bargaining Council Picketing rules, we are open to engaging Transnet on the same rules.
All Transnet employees are not essential workers, and they are allowed by the law to go on a protected strike. However, you may share with us the legislation and or agreement that designated some employees as essential workers.
As SATAWU we dispute any material procedural irregularities regarding the processes we followed in serving the notice to strike.
Therefore, our strike is legal, and will commence on Monday the 10 October 2022 as arranged. We hope that the above is in order.
Issued by SATAWU
