Early on Monday morning members of South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) working for Goldern Arrow Bus Service embarked in a strike which resulted in buses not been able to move, especial from Arrowgate depot.

“SATAWU’s main reason for this is that they are objecting the company’s right to discipline its members who took part in an illegal strike more than a week ago in Eastgate depot,” says Vuyile Mdoda Golden Arrow spokesperson.

Scores of people from areas like Phillippi, Gugulethu, Crossroads and Lower Crossroads flocked in Nyanga taxi rank to seek alternative ways to get to work.

Commuters described SATAWU’s move as unfair as there was no warning of a strike.

“We are trying to resolve the matter as we understand the inconvenience it is causing to our passengers,” says Mdoda

All attempts to get comments from SATAWU have failed.
