The Motor Transport Workers Union will be taking to the streets on 11 July to voice concerns with the conditions under which they work, especially with regards to the recent escalations in cash-in-transit heists.

Union spokesperson Hlasinyane Motaung says they will be demanding training for their members on how to handle heist situations.

The union is also demanding that the companies get firearm licences for their members because it believes the workers need them.

We are saying to the government please come to the party and assist these companies in acquiring the firearms licences that are needed because that seems to be a big problem.
