Pick n Pay staff down tools at 7pm

2010-09-24 13:35

The strike at Pick n Pay stores across the country will start at 7pm so that affects business tomorrow, a union spokesperson said.

“We wanted the strike to start on September 24 but the people who start work at 7pm are putting out stock for tomorrow. We want the strike to have an effect on business,” South Africa Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers Union, deputy general secretary Mduduzi Mbongwe said.

About 27 000 members are expected to go on strike.

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