Metrorail says they are running a reduced passenger train service today, focusing only on the morning and late afternoon rush hours.
This comes after the South African Transport and Allied Workers' Union rejected a 10-percent wage increase offer from the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa and an 11-percent offer from Transnet.
Transnet's Satawu members are now entering their third week of strike action.
Metrorail says they have beefed-up security at train stations to ensure that striking workers do not disrupt the reduced train service.
