The four Transnet trade unions involved in a dispute with Transnet over transformation of the transport parastatal have postponed the national strike from this coming Monday (6 March) for one week until Monday 13 March.
According to the union’s national media office, Ronnie Mamba the reason for the delay is to enable Gauteng union members to participate in the planned marches. These workers would otherwise ‘have been hindered by the high profile case against ANC deputy president Jacob Zuma who goes on trial (for rape) on 6 March in the Johannesburg High Court.’
Mamba said the unions would hold marches in all the main centres on 13 March. He said that COSATU, the SACP and the ANC Gauteng had confirmed their participation in the marches.
