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
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
