South African Airways (SAA) employees to go on a full-blown strike if their demands are not met.
The South African Airways workers have accused the airline's management of subjecting them to "slavery conditions" after their wages were cut by more than 30% among other issues.
The workers who are represented by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) took the march to South African Airway's office in Kempton Park over dissatisfaction with their employment conditions
The workers have also expressed their unhappiness with SAA interim chief executive officer Thomas Kgokolo, who the unions have accused of being unwilling to engage with them. The airline has only been back in the business for a few couple weeks and the employees says many of the airline's old problems have been inherited by the new airline.
About 500 workers who are represented by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) are demanding that the airline's management should hear their concerns about cutting of wages.
