JOHANNESBURG - In court papers seen by eNCA, Numsa and SACCA have filed an urgent court application to the Labour Appeals Court to stop the SAA business rescue practitioners from implementing a full retrenchment process.

The unions say it is unlawful to implement the process as the practitioners have not submitted a business rescue plan.

The release of the rescue plan has been extended several times.

The unions have based their argument on the fact that no plan has been presented therefore no retrenchments should be implemented.

A deadline for workers, unionised and non-unionised members to sign a proposal to have the entire workforce retrenched is Friday 5pm.

However, Numsa, Sacca and the Pilots Association have made it clear they will not sign.
