The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) is pleased with the Pretoria High Court ruling which has ordered government to settle Gauteng bus operators November debt by noon tomorrow.
SATAUW says that the case will continue on the 4 February 2009 for the balance while politicians have been given time to sort out the matter in the meantime. SATAWU general secretary Randall Howard says that the union welcomes the decision of the Pretoria High Court.
“Essentially it compels government to pay R300 million to the Gauteng Province to ensure that bus services continue to operate,” said Howard.
