Shoprite workers in King Williams Town have joined a two-day nationwide strike called by their union for better working conditions.
As from today we will take a pause in production until the 22nd of January but we thought it would be a great idea to end the year by looking back to some of the big stories we have covered over the course of the year.
One of the workers still employed at the supermarket who has supported the dismissed workers was suspended for not coming to work and for “taking part in an unlawful strike”
The Shoprite workers dismissed from the Pelican Park Cente supermarket picketed outside the shopping centre in Cape Town on Friday. They have galvanized support from activists and community members, and have started a crowd funding initiative to sustain their struggle.
