- | 5 months ago

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) would lead the SAA strike involving 3 000 workers, including technical and non-technical staff.

Responding to the move, the cash-strapped SAA said it would ground all its domestic and regional flights to minimise flight delays as a result of the strike.

EFF spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, said the party did not only support the strike action but would also join it.
