TRANSNET PORT TERMINALS (TPT) OPERATIONAL STATUS: FOR
CONTAINER TERMINALS IN THE PORTS OF DURBAN, NGQURA, PORT
ELIZABETH AND CAPE TOWN: 11 OCTOBER 2022
Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) has continued to keep our customers and
stakeholders informed of the industrial action by South African Transport Allied Workers’ Union (SATAWU) and United National Transport Union (UNTU), since 04 October 2022.
The situation regarding the industrial action remains unchanged. There has been a decrease in manning levels which has resulted in and Terminals not being fully operational. The container terminals are activating business continuity plans to ensure operations are minimally impacted by the strike action.
Durban Container terminal:
Please note that Pier 2 is challenged with minimal resources, as a result, waterside, landside and rail are non-operational. We will furnish further updates in due course. Customers are advised not to dispatch
trucks to the terminal until further notice.
Please be advised that Pier 1 Container Terminal is not fully operational due to shortage of manning levels, we are currently manning 1 gang. All Landside operations has been suspended until further notice.
During this period, all appointment slots are on hold until further notice.
The terminal is assessing the situation closely and will provide further updates regarding any contingency plans in due course. Extensions have been granted and will continue to be reviewed and communicated
via Transnet website. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Transnet and its recognised unions UNTU and SATAWU concluded the first day of conciliation talks facilitated by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), which adjourned in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The parties have agreed and signed on the picketing rules and picketing sites, and remain willing to find a solution on the wage negotiations, under the auspices of the CCMA.
The parties to the negotiations are considering alternative proposals and will reconvene on Wednesday, 12 October 2022 to take the process forward.
