PosOnderwerp: TRANSNET AND UNIONS TO GO ON NATIONAL STRIKE- 10 MAY 2010   Thu May 06, 2010 10:15 am

ALL CFC TAKE NOTE:

PERSONAL LETTER ERCIEVED FROM TRANSNET ON 06/06/2010:


We received the following additional response detail from Cape Metrorail's Marketing and Communications Department -

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA), has learnt that the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) and the United Transport and Allied Trade Unions (UTATU), plan to embark on joint strike action at PRASA and Transnet on the 10th of May 2010, the aim of the strike according to the Unions is to "close down all rail operations nationally".

PRASA Management and Labour have been in negotiations aimed at modernizing the Conditions of Service at PRASA since October 2009, these negotiations have also

included the annual wage negotiations. The overall aim of the planned changes is to bring about the necessary efficiencies in the operations of PRASA, reduce the cost of

rail operations and improve public transport provision e.g. a shift system will enable PRASA to run its trains for over 16 hours a day and do maintenance work in the offpeak periods i.e. at night and over weekends, without incurring additional costs for overtime and allowances.

These negotiations are focused on modernizing things such as working time and introducing a rotational shift system, in exchange for a 2.5% adjustment to the basic

salary of junior employees. The PRASA Management proposal to Labour (inclusive of conditions of service adjustment and Wage offer) is a wage increase of 8%.

Labour demands a wage increase of 15%, which is completely not affordable and sustainable. The planned strike is clearly aimed at forcing the hand of PRASA ahead of

the 2010 FIFA World Cup(tm). The decision by Labour to link two separate companies (PRASA and Transnet - with separate budgets, separate Boards and Management,

separate cost structures, separate mandates, serving two distinct customer bases) into one strike action, and to embark on strike when the negotiation process is underway, and when the parties are due to meet for conciliation on the 4th of May has put the bona fides of Labour during the negotiations into serious question. Labour is clearly not negotiating in good faith. Agreeing to this demand would render the operational costs of PRASA immediately not affordable.

Having noted Labour's determination to "close down rail operations nationally" from the 10th of May, PRASA has decided to:

·May, the Suspend Rail Operations from the 10th of purpose is to secure and protect people (customers and employees) and the assets of PRASA; all other

· Immediately communicate to commuters and stakeholders the planned strike and the attendant disruptions that will follow, and urge commuters to make alternative transport arrangements; and Seek legal ·planned opinion on the legality of the strike. In the event that Labour proceeds with the planned strike, PRASA will be left with no option but:

·To implement the 8%· 01 wage offer to Labour; by To implement the new Conditions of Service June 2010; and

· To implement the 4 Months Maternity leave provision with full pay.

PRASA submits a sincere apology for the disruption and inconvenience commuters will suffer should the strike go ahead. Commuters are urged to make alternative transport arrangements.

PRASA hopes that an amicable solution will be found within the next few days, one that protects the long-term business imperatives of this Public Company and secures its future. We are satisfied that PRASA, formerly the SARCC, has paid millions to employees and has also made many concessions to Labour. There are clearly limits to

what can be offered to Labour in a context where personnel constitute 30% of operational costs.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused you. If you have any other questions in this regard please do not hesitate to phone our 24 hour toll free number at 0800 65 64 63.



Sincerely

Transport strike may hit power supply
06/06/2010 -40 minutes ago

Svetlana Doneva


Johannesburg - Various business interest groups have warned of dire consequences for the economy if the transport workers' strike goes ahead.
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) and the United Transport and Allied Trade Union (Utatu) have threatened to start striking on Monday over wage disputes with their employer, state transport utility Transnet.


Interruptions to the movement of coal to key power stations such Majuba may have dire consequences to power supply, said the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) on Thursday.


Power interruptions in turn will hit the manufacturing, retail, mining and other industries.


"The distribution of fuel and supply of avgas [aviation fuel] and bunker fuel to airlines and shipping lines could be crippled," said Sacci.


The business body added that this could damage South Africa's reputation as a reliable trading partner - at a time when attention is focused on the country because of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.


Other adverse consequences could be delays with coal and iron ore exports, as well as commuter disruptions.

Sacci said it is "deeply concerned" about the strike, and urged parties involved to reach agreement as soon as possible.


Meanwhile, the automotive industry has also spoken out about risks to the sector. These mainly relate to delays in transport of new vehicles from factories to dealerships.


Further disruptions would occur at South African ports, where imported components and vehicles would not make their way out of harbours.


Dave Powels, president of the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers SA (Naamsa), said on Wednesday that industrial action would be "extremely damaging".


"A strike would close all the assembly plants within a matter of days, with a massive cascade effect throughout the entire automotive value chain," said Powels.

Powels added that this would occur at a time when the motor industry is pulling itself out of a crippling three-and-a-half-year recession characterised by low nationwide sales.

Vehicle sales in May or June will be affected if transport disruptions result in stock shortages at dealerships, said Jacques Brent, vice-president of Marketing and Service at Ford Motor Company SA.

Brent estimated that 10 000 units less could be sold in May compared to April, should the strike go ahead.

Staking gaan voort
2010-05-17 20:16



Kaapstad – Volgens Utatu sal Transnet werkers voortgaan met die staking ná mislukte onderhandelings met die Kommissie vir Versoening, Bemiddeling en Arbitrasie.

Utatu (United Transport & Allied Trade Union) sowel as lede van die South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) sal Dinsdag na die Parlement toe marsjeer om ‘n memorandum aan Sibusiso Ndebele, minister van vervoer, te oorhandig.

“Die staking gaan voort," het Chris de Vos, hoofsekretaris van Utatu, aan die media gesê.

“Transnet bestuur het dit duidelik gemaak dat ons nié met hulle moet probeer praat nie.

“Hulle het aangedui dat ons slegs moet bel as ons gereed is om hulle aanbod te aanvaar.”

De Vos wou nie uitbrei oor die details van die memorandum nie.

Hulle sal 11uur more oggend parlement toe marsjeer.

Vrese dat staking tot geweld kan lei
2010-05-15 07:44

Marelize Barnard, Die Burger

Kaapstad - Die vrees dat Maandag se grootskaalse staking deur Metrorail-werknemers in geweld kan ontaard, het die polisie en ander wetstoepassers op die hoogste gereedheidsgrondslag.

Die Suid-Afrikaanse Passasierspooragentskap (Prasa) het bevestig dat die vakbonde die South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) en die United Transport & Allied Trade Union (Utatu) kennis gegee het dat die staking Maandagoggend kort ná middernag, gaan begin.

Die Wes-Kaapse polisiehoof, lt.genl. Mzwandile Petros, het Vrydag gesê daar gaan meer polisie­lede en verkeersbeamptes ontplooi word om veiligheid op te skerp.

“Een van die moontlikhede is dat treinwaens verwoes kan word. Ons besef dit kan in daardie rigting gaan,” het Petros aan Die Burger gesê.

Pendelaars gaan ander vervoer, soos busse en taxi’s, gebruik en om hul veiligheid te verseker, gaan die polisie in samewerking met die veiligheidsdienste van die Kaapse stadsraad (insluitend die metropolisie en verkeersbeamptes) ook spesifiek daarop fokus om taxi- en busstaanplekke te beveilig. “Ons wil verseker dat pendelaars hul bestemmings bereik,” het Petros gesê.

Prasa het in ’n nuusverklaring gesê ten einde die veiligheid van pendelaars te verseker tydens die staking, is alle treindienste vanaf Maandag opgeskort.

Die Kaapse stadsraad het ook in ’n verklaring gesê die staking gaan tot ’n ernstige ontwrigting van openbare vervoer en die verkeersvloei lei.

Meer as die helfte van Kaapstad se pendelaars ry gewoonlik trein.

Die stadsraad, provinsiale regering, busmaatskappye, taxi-operateurs, sakekamers en die polisie het saamgewerk aan ’n plan om die ontwrigting te probeer verminder.

Die plan behels:

Die oggend- en aand-spitstye gaan verleng word sodat meer pendelaars die kans kan kry om by hul bestemmings uit te kom. Werkgewers word gevra om werksure aan te pas waar moontlik;

Taxi- en busoperateurs het ingestem om ook langer ure te werk, maar daar word voorsien dat dit nie heeltemal sal opmaak vir die opgeskorte treindienste nie;

’n Veiligheidsplan is opgestel en daar is ’n gesamentlike operasionele sentrum op die been gebring, en

Bykomende veiligheidspersoneel word ontplooi om mense te beskerm.

Pendelaars in Kaapstad kan 0 0800 656 463 skakel vir meer inligting.

Sal dit nou nie n grap wees as die strik te lank aan hou nie want self al los hulle die strik op voor die wc moet die back log ook nog weg gewerk word.

As iemand die statiestiek vir ons kan uit werk. hoeveel dae is nodig wanneer hulle trug is by die werk om alles weer tot normaal te kry hou ook ingedagte dat meer ingevoer word spesifiek vir die WC en dat as dit nie op dier regte plek is nie het dit geen waarde nie.


Dink net hoe mooi ons sap gaan lyk met al hul voorberyding en dan mors n staking alles op. geen geweld nie maar ekonomies in sy hel. en dis nou waar die geld gemaak moes word.

Die doom dag wil nou maar net nie gaan le nie.
