COSATU fully support the planed one day nationwide strike by SACCAWU members at Shoprite on Friday 22 December 2017
The Congress of South African Trade Unions fully support the planned one day nationwide protected strike by more than 30 000 SACCAWU members working for Shoprite Checkers on the 22nd of December 2017.
- These workers will be demanding an immediate end and reversal of the unilateral changes to working hours; including the reinstatement of Sandton Checker's employees who were subsequently dismissed for protesting against these changes.
- They also demand the provision and payment of safe transport for workers who work night shifts.
- An immediate end to the reduction of working hours for part-time workers.
- A guaranteed number of minimum working hours for part-time workers.
The union will be holding various marches and protests in various towns all across the country on the same day. The federation calls for solidarity action from other workers and shoppers on the day of the strike. Shoprite customers should vote with their feet and rebuke the retailer for treating workers like glorified slaves.
An injury to one is an injury to all!
