Over 300 workers employed by Massmart went on a strike in Durban on Thursday against what they call “the company’s anti-union stance”.

The demonstration was organised by South African Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers Union (Saccawu) and is part of a national protest that started on Wednesday and ended Thursday.

Retail giant Massmart owns some of the country’s popular stores like Game, Cambridge Foods, Rhino and Makro.
