South African Breweries says it is confident that operations at its soft drinks division, ABI, will not suffer any disruptions due to a strike.
Members of the Food and Allied Workers Union are demanding a 9.5% pay hike, while ABI is offering 7.8%.
SAB spokesperson Robyn Chalmers says the company has supplies for at least seven days.
ABI is one of five companies which bottle Coca-Cola products.
Fawu says if the deadlock continues, it will call for a “sympathy strike” at other bottling plants.
