IFP Concerned about the ongoing transport strike

March 7, 2005

The Economic Cluster of the IFP in Parliament, at its meeting today, expressed its concern about the ongoing transport strike and the severe consequences and cost to the Country.

The IFP therefore calls on both parties to the impasse to put South Africa first and through proper negotiations come to a negotiated settlement of this grave situation.

We have noted with gratitude that some progress has been made and that a report-back session to the relevant principals is being made. We can only trust that the leaders on both sides will be reasonable, to bring this dispute to an amicable end.
