Should SAA Technical executives pay back the money?

The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) has demanded that South African Airways Technical (SAAT) should begin legal proceedings to recover about R5m from its senior executives.

Numsa said on Sunday that it had not ruled out a strike at SAAT, where the trade union’s members were allegedly being victimised for attempting to blow the whistle on corruption. The union has also called for the enforcement of a labour court judgment in August that ordered the suspension of senior SAAT executives.

The company has indicated it would be appealing against the judgment. No time frame had been given for a response from SAAT, but a strike would remain the last resort, a Numsa spokeswoman said. Numsa’s allegations are based on a forensic report which confirmed that proper supply chain management policies were not followed at SAAT, which resulted in losses having been incurred. SAA has confirmed receipt of Numsa’s correspondence, which will be referred to the relevant internal structures for consideration.
