The National Union of Metalworkers (NUMSA) will go to the Labour Court in Johannesburg today to defend their strike at Comair. Comair management is attempting to interdict the strike because they claim it is illegal. The strike follows the CCMA
issuing a certificate of non-resolution after the parties failed to reach an agreement on salary discrepancy. Comair says it will have a comprehensive contingency plan in place and intends to continue its daily operations during the long Easter holiday. The company operates Kulula and British Airways in South Africa.
