Pick n Pay workers go on strike

About 27,000 members of Saccawu at Pick n Pay are expected to go on strike from Friday, the union said.

The employer was expecting that workers accept no increases in 2011 and 2012, but merely an adjustment in their wages equal to the inflation rate, SA Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers' Union deputy general secretary Mduduzi Mbongwe told reporters in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Workers however wanted a R550 per month increase, or 12 percent, a 10 percent staff discount on basic food items, increased working hours of about 120 per month for part-time workers, and a one-year wage agreement.

The union further demanded an end to the use of labour brokers and the establishment of a centralised bargaining forum for the retail and wholesale sector.
