Cabinet wants SAA strike resolved amicably

Cabinet has raised its concerns over a strike by workers at the South African Airways (SAA).

Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu was speaking in a post-Cabinet briefing on Thursday.

He says Cabinet wants the matter to be resolved amicably and in the interest of all parties.

Eyewitness News reporter Gaye Davis was at the briefing.

Cabinet itself has said that while all workers have got the right to strike, they also need to observe the rights of others.

Essentially all they are saying is that they caution against irresponsible public utterances to the safety of passengers or their families during this time. They want a peaceful and non-destructive matter of resolving the dispute.
