SAA strike unlikely to end anytime soon
It has been confirmed that disgruntled cabin crew and technical employees at the South African Airways (SAA) will continue their strike until Monday.
Workers who have downed tools at the OR Tambo International Airport since Friday morning are demanding an 8% salary hike, insourcing and an end to retrenchment plans, but SAA is offering 5.9% and has offered to set up a task team to look into the demands.
Eyewitness News reporter Veronica Makhoali says customers have been redirected to Mango Airlines.
