Employees of the Gautrain commuter rail network in Gauteng province ended their two-week strike on Monday, August 13, after reaching a 12-month pay agreement with the company. Gautrain has announced that full services will not resume until Wednesday, August 15, although more trains will run on August 14 than during the strike period. Further details concerning Tuesday's schedule will be released later on Monday.
An indefinite strike was launched by Gautrain workers on July 31 to demand an increase in salaries and allowances. The Gautrain commuter rail network links Johannesburg, Pretoria, Ekhuruleni, and O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB).
Travelers are advised to confirm rail timetables and allow for extra time to reach their destinations until normal services are fully restored.
