The Golden Arrow bus service has rejected claims by trade union NUMSA that management has made unilateral changes to the conditions of employment.
Workers have staged a picket outside the Montana depot in Cape Town yesterday claiming that the workers have received letters, informing them about management's plan to cut
the workers' wages and that new rates will be introduced.
Golden Arrow spokesperson, Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, says the dispute relates to a new remuneration struct ure for promotional positions and employees in their current position are not affected: "We have noted the press release issued by NUMSA and TOWU and are shocked by claims that all employees will be paid new rates.
The dispute relates only to a new remuneration structure for promotional positions and does not relate to employees in their current positions.
It is the company's position that the remuneration structure of promotional positions falls within management's prerogative subject to the provisions of the bargaining council."
