Woolworths workers continue to strike

Due to failure of any response from Woolworths, the National Woolworths Strike at a meeting on Friday 19 September have decided to extend the notice of strike and served the notice to the company.

This means that if workers decide to continue with the strike from Monday it will continue to be a legal protected strike.

SACCAWU media liaison Mike Abrahams says, the workers remain committed to their demands and they are willing to struggle for the realisation of it.

General meetings will be held throughout the country today where a renewed mandate will be obtained from striking workers to decide on a way forward.

Despite many attempts by the company to frustrate, and intimidate striking workers more than 65% of Woolworths stores are affected by the strike.

Tony Ehrenreich Provincial Secretary for Cosatu in the Western Cape says Woolworths has the most casual workers who work under the most exploitive conditions and society cannot be complicit in this exploitation by supporting Woolworths.
