Johannesburg - The South African National Parks (SANParks) on Monday said announced that some of their parks would be closed on Friday due to the planned protest.
Spokesperson for SANParks, Reynold “Rey” Thakhuli, said the protest was only expected to take place on one day, and would be conducted specifically in the Kruger National Park, Paul Kruger Gate with staff from other parks encouraged to withdraw labour.
It has been reported that workers will protest over a wage dispute.
In a statement released last week, SANParks said that parties have to finalise picketing rules and agree to the facilitation of a strike ballot.
"To minimise any disruptions in the delivery of service to the guests due to the withdrawal of labour, SANParks would like to assure its guests that contingency plans are in place and will be activated with immediate effect in all parks," said Thakhuli.
