Employees at one of KwaZulu-Natal’s biggest abattoirs went on strike yesterday, forcing production to a standstill.

The union had requested a copy of the contract before it could be signed. “We asked for a copy of the contract for our perusal, but yesterday morning the company tried to force the workers to sign and when they refused they were dismissed,” said Chemical, Energy, Paper, Printing, Wood and Allied Workers’ Union (Ceppwawu) representative Mafanalo Dladla.
