SAA strike halted

South African Airways says it has successfully halted a potential strike by the South African Cabin Crew Association, representing about 80 percent of SAA’s cabin crew, which was went on strike last week over international meal allowances.

The strike, which was halted last Wednesday by an interim order, caused about 30 flights to be cancelled as crew demanded an increase in the daily international meal allowance from $131 to $170.

SAA said in a statement that the order was granted after the labour union appealed to the court against the interim order granted in favour of the airline.

SAA says it is inviting SACCA back to the negotiating table as soon as possible.
