Minister Grant to brief the media on taxi industry's threat of strike action

Today, 3 August 2018, Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, will brief the media on possible strike action by members of the minibus taxi industry. The Western Cape Government has been informed by concerned taxi operators and the SAPS's Crime Intelligence Division, that the self-styled Minibus Taxi Industry Task Team ('Task Team'), which has been involved in a legal dispute with the SA National Taxi Council (SANTACO), has once again threatened to 'withdraw services' of minibus taxis with effect from Monday 6 August 2018.

Minister Grant will be briefing the media on the issues that have been identified by the disgruntled grouping, as well as on the steps taken by the department to resolve these issues and avoid strike action.

There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.
