Cape Town - The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has confirmed that Metrorail will run a limited service during the planned mass protest that is expected to take place on Friday.
Metrorail will operate a reduced service, similar to that offered on Saturdays and Sundays due to the majority of Safety Critical staff that might be participating in the protest.
Prasa reiterates that employees who decided not to join the mass action have not been intimidated in any way by management.
"Prasa recognises that the mass action on 26 July is not a labour strike against Prasa but a Fedusa led mass action against government along with its affiliated union Untu as the majority union at Prasa," said Prasa in a statement.
"This means that while Untu members are granted permission to participate in the mass action, not all Prasa employees within operations will be participating.
