Illegal train strike over, says Metrorail

An illegal strike by Metrorail train drivers has ended, Metrorail said on Friday.

The train drivers went on strike over the lack of security and the high rate of abuse and harassment by commuters on Thursday afternoon, spokesperson Tony Games said.

They agreed to return to work on Friday after a meeting with management.

“While management respects employee’s right to protest, those who participated in this illegal action will face the consequences of their actions,” Games said.

Contingency plans were put in place on Thursday with five shuttle trains transporting commuters between Johannesburg and Naledi.

Metrorail was running normal train services on Friday, he said. — Sapa
