Event

Rail workers threatened to begin an indefinite strike that would cause disruptions on rail services in Gauteng province from Monday, October 5. The threat to strike comes after the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) and the management and operating company for the Gautrain, which operates in Gauteng province, failed to agree on wage-related issues. If the strike goes ahead, it would cause disruptions in rail services between Johannesburg, Pretoria, Ekhuruleni, and O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB).

Protests associated with the strike are possible. A heightened security forces presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of potential protests.

Advice

Those in Gauteng province are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
