JOHANNESBURG - South African Airways business rescue practitioners have failed to persuade the Labour Appeal court that they can go ahead with retrenchments at SAA without first issuing a section 189 notice and consulting staff.
The court also found that a business rescue plan must be submitted before retrenchments can take place.
SAA business rescue practitioners appealed a judgment handed down in May.
At the time the Labour Court found the practitioners couldn't implement retrenchments without following the legal requirements for a joint consensus-seeking process.
