The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) says negotiations are still deadlocked.

There is no end in sight for a nationwide bus strike as the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) continues to negotiate between bus drivers and their employers.

Wage negotiations reached a deadlock this month with workers dropping their 12% demand to 9.5% in the first year and 9% in the second year and employers upping their offer from 7% to between 8% and 8.5%.

Satawu National Coordinator Solomon Mahlangu says things are deadlocked.

There is no light in the tunnel in finding common ground between ourselves and the employers.

Solomon Mahlangu, SATAWU National Coordinator

We have made a number concessions. We have just written a letter to the bargaining council general secretary indicating that our door remains open for discussions with the employers to engage further and make further persuasions between ourselves. We hope they will extend their hand as well and come to the party.
