Two trade unions are not happy with South African Airways' decision to appoint a business rescue practitioner without discussing it with them.
Briefly.co.za learned that Numsa (National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa and Sacca (South African Cabin Crew Association) are ready to take the national carrier to court. They are unhappy that the government did not meet their conditions before starting the rescue process.
Les Matuson has been appointed as the business rescue practitioner by SAA according to iol.co.za.
Phakamile Hlubi-Majola, the spokesperson for Numsa, said that by appointing a rescue practitioner the government was interfering with the process.
“They must agree to have Vuyani Jarana, the former GCEO, recognised as an expert to work hand in hand with the business rescue practitioner they have appointed. If they do not accept that condition we will go to court and apply for an urgent interdict for the court to give us a directive stipulating that the business rescue application which Solidarity made continues because they have not withdrawn that application,” said Hlubi-Majola.
