South African Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) members employed by Teti Traffic will hand over a memorandum of demands at the offices of the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) on Friday. This will come “ahead of the meeting with the employer at the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA)”‚ a Satawu statement said.Negotiations at the CCMA on May 4 “were inconclusive as the employer’s negotiators claimed they did not have a mandate to act on the offer on the table”.Those aborted talks came two days after the striking workers blocked the N1 North near New Road offramp.Teti Traffic is contracted by Sanral to clear accidents off the roads of Gauteng.The union is demanding salary increases for a number of categories of its members.It wants an increase from R4 325 to R6 000 for general workers‚ an increase from R4 680 to R9 000 for basic life support staff‚ R6 000 to R7 000 for traffic safety officers‚ R6 600 to R12 000 for traffic management staff‚ R13 000 to R16 000 for senior operators‚ and R4 325 to R13 000 for technicians.The union is also demanding other benefits including a provident fund‚ medical aid and a 13th cheque.The employer had indicated it could only afford a 7% increase. ..
