Meanwhile, Last year, the union approached the Labour Court in Johannesburg to force Prasa to pay up.
The union’s spokesperson, Sonja Carstens: “Prasa is bound to pay this increase in terms of a multi-term agreement signed with the unions in last year. Untu has now warned Prasa that if it’s not going to adhere to the multi-term agreement, the union will approach the Labour Court once again to enforce this payment.”
