The Dube TradePort Corporation, an agency of the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government, has announced that 112 employees, members of the Nehawu trade union, have gone on strike. The workers work in the company’s Bargaining Unit.

The corporation has created and operates the Dube TradePort special economic zone and air cargo complex at Durban’s King Shaka International Airport. Nehawu issued the notice to strike after what Dube TradePort described as a “prolonged” process of negotiation and arbitration.

The company has assured all customers and stakeholders that backup measures have been implemented, to ensure that the strike has no significant impact on its operations. The corporation and the union have also agreed on a designated picketing area. This will ensure unimpeded access to the Dube TradePort and to the airport complex, during the strike.

“Dube TradePort believes that dialogue is the best way to achieve a sustainable settlement,” affirmed the corporation in its statement. “Dube TradePort remains open to further engagements with the union to find a resolution that balances the interests of workers and the financial sustainability of the organisation.”
