BUSA is trying to stop the national banking strike through an interdict.

Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) will head to court tomorrow in a bid to halt the planned protest action by workers in the banking sector this coming Friday and argues that SASBO did not follow the right procedure for the strike.

BUSA will file the court application to interdict against the intended protest action on behalf of South Africa's commercial banks.

Sasbo planned to stage nationwide protest action on Friday September 27.

Sasbo secretary-general Joe Kokela has dismissed BUSA’s argument and said the protest action is legal which means it is protected as per Section 77 of the Labour Relations Act.

He told union members that the action will be classified as a protected (legal) strike which means “no work, no pay and no discipline”.

He added that SASBO is planning five marches throughout the country in Johannesburg, Durban, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
