Sacca, Numsa demand SAA consultation

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) says it will fight a decision by SAA's business rescue practitioners to cut jobs. #DStv403

JOHANNESBURG - Numsa and the South African Cabin Crew Association (Sacca)  warn they could stop SAA's Business Rescue Practitioners from submitting their business rescue plan if union members are not consulted as part of the process.

The unions want all stakeholders and their members to be consulted during the business rescue process.

However, unions say this shouldn't happen until workers have been consulted, given an opportunity to make submissions and review the plan.

Unions have given the Business Rescue Practitioners until the end of business on Tuesday to respond to their demands otherwise they'll ask the courts to stop the publication from happening.
