Strike certificate issued at South Africa's Comair - union

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A strike certificate has been issued at South African airline Comair (COMJ.J) as part of a secondary strike against South African Airways, a spokeswoman for the National Union of Metalworkers South Africa said on Wednesday.

Two unions that called a crippling strike at SAA said on Sunday they would pursue a secondary strike to ensure their demands are met, that they warned could shut down the entire aviation sector.

After a strike certificate is issued, unions have to notify employers within 48 hours of any strike action.

(This story corrects final line to show unions have to give 48 hours notice of strike, not give notice within 48 hours of certificate)
