The National Union of Metal Workers of South Africa says it is dismayed and disappointed by what it terms the failure of government to resolve issues raised by the South African National Taxi Council.
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (Sacca) say they have reached a dead-end with the Department of Public Enterprises when it comes to saving South Africans Airways.
The Department of Public Enterprises has withdrawn from the Leadership Consultative Forum that was established to facilitate employee engagement to develop a business and operating model for a restructured SAA.
Two South African unions on Friday rejected job cuts proposed to rescue South African Airways, which has cost the government more than a billion dollars to stave off bankruptcy and will cost it about half that again to reform.
Administrators at state-owned South African Airways (SAA) have asked creditors to delay the publication of a rescue plan for the cash-strapped airline until next week, after trade unions objected to the plan being published on Monday.
