Robertson Winery accused of reneging on wage deal
Workers employed by Robertson Winery could be headed to court again over the company’s alleged refusal to honour a wage deal.
CAPE TOWN - Workers employed by Robertson Winery could be headed to court again over the company’s alleged refusal to honour a wage deal.
The Commercial Stevedoring Agricultural and Allied Workers Union (CSAAWU) went on a three-month strike over wages, with employees apparently being paid as little as R300 to R400 a week.
Parties eventually reached an agreement in November with workers receiving a R400 increase and an undertaking that no action would be taken against those who went on strike.
The union’s Trevor Christians says Robertson Winery has reneged on that deal.
“It is a common course in terms of negotiations, you negotiate for best pay, that’s R400 for four months. The union also urged workers to remain calm as we deal with the situation within legal process.”
