Cash van guards threaten to strike

Cash-in-transit guards are threatening to strike if the demands they have put forward are not met.

Officials from the Motor Transport Allied Workers Union (MTUW), the Federation of Unions of SA (FEDUSA), National Economic Development and Labour Council (NEDLAC) are to meet their demands for safer working conditions.

The guards want Safety and Security Minister Charles Nquakula to set up minimum standards for the industry and better equipped cash vans fitted with a proper vault, locking system and air-conditioning.

Emlie Fourie spokesperson for MTWU says that an urgent meeting of union employers, Nedlac and officials from the departments of Labour, Transport, Finance, Safety and Security are scheduled to meet next week.

A daily newspaper reports that the unions fear that the robberies will increase during the festive season.

it's very important decision. Cash vans surely should be equipped better in order to protect them from robberies, especially in big cities

Only better equipped cash vans fitted with a proper vault, locking system can decrease robberies, as it would be nont easy for them to rob such vans

Van mans who do their job securing others money can have serious trouble sometimes. I think the demands are more than fair.

During festive season robberies can really increase, but I believe Safety and Security Ministry will solve this problem and cash-in-transit guards won't be afraid of doing their job.

Unfortunately cash vans are often under the threat of robberies. They think it's easier money for them then in banks or shops. That's why it's really important to secure vans much thoroughly.
