The South African Airways (SAA) strike will go ahead on Friday after a wage agreement could not be reached.

NUMSA and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) failed to reach a wage agreement with management during talks in Johannesburg on Thursday. The strike will start at 4 am Friday morning.

The unions had been demanding an eight percent increment across the board. SAA was offering a five point nine percent increase – which was rejected by the unions.

The unions had also wanted SAA to shelve plans to shed 900 jobs.
