The South African Broadcasting Corporation said that it expects unions to abide by a court order to not go on strike until a pending Labour Court case is heard.
The Labour Court postponed an application, brought by the national broadcaster, to prevent workers embarking on industrial action on Friday.
The case will now be heard late next week meanwhile the Communication Workers Union and the Media Workers Association were given permission by the CCMA to go on a protected strike.
The SABC’s spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said, “The court order is there, the order is the order of the court and they (unions) have to abide by it.”
