SATAWU's Zanele Sabela says it has appointed a task team to deal with a number of issues.

"We look forward to the task team resolving that work. The good thing about it is that there is clause that says whenever there are issues that the task team is looking at, it can be immediately implemented - they don't have to wait until the next round of negotiations," she said.
