JOHANNESBURG – Gautrain operations will resume to full capacity from Friday, after National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) members agreed to a 4% salary hike.

Workers had been demanding an 8% increase, but Gautrain operator Bombela was offering half of that.

Disagreements forced both parties to take the matter to the CCMA, were everyone settled on a 4% increase.

Guatrain put contingency plans in place earlier this month when services were disrupted by the strike.

Spokesperson Kasagee Nayager explained how trains were operating on Thursday.

“Trains will operate at 15 minute intervals during peak periods and at 30 minute intervals during off-peak times. We thank the CCMA for their assistance in ending the wage deadlock and we also thank our passengers for their understanding during this time.”
