Durban - An Empangeni woman who was not allowed to take non-halaal food to work at KFC has lodged a complaint with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), it was reported on Thursday.

This was the second such complaint against the fast food chain.

The Witness reported that Sfikile Nokuthula Buthelezi was asking the CCMA to set aside final warnings she received for taking non-halaal food onto KFC premises in Maxwell Street, Empangeni.

United Chemical Industries, Mining, Electrical, State, Health and Aligned Workers Union provincial secretary Bheki Shabane said the woman bought food from a nearby supermarket, but was prevented from taking it onto the premises of the KFC.

The matter would be heard on September 4.

On Friday, KFC lost a case of unfair dismissal against an employee who took phuthu (maize porridge) and bean curry to work at the Empangeni Village branch of KFC.

Jabulani Cele, 31, was reinstated after appearing before the CCMA.

KFC franchise holders Colefax Trading and Yum Restaurants International were ordered to pay him R5 200 in lost wages.

The companies which own KFC follow Islamic practices.

The Witness said KFC's chief marketing officer could not be reached for comment.
