The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union will lead a protest on Friday on behalf of Lanseria Airport workers in Gauteng.

The union will demand increased wages, an overhaul of working conditions and greater attention to worker skill development.

In a recent statement, the union wrote that working conditions in the airport still resemble those of the apartheid era.

SATAWU spokesperson Refiloe Lepere the workers have decided that they are tired of being abused by the Apartheid style management of Lanseria Airport and are demanding a living wage.

“They would like a transformed working conditions and proper up skilling development training programme which the company does not offer any of this.

It is our belief as SATAWU that workers should be receiving a living wage and should be working in spaces where it is imperative that transformation must happen and that they should be skilled in any way or form that is possible for them to be skilled,” Lepere added.
