Minor delivery delays for some supermarkets
One supermarket said contingency plans were in place should the strike become protracted.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) strike has resulted in some delivery delays, several supermarkets confirmed on Monday.
Last week, thousands of truck drivers embarked on mass action to demand a 12 percent salary increase per year, for the next two years.
Spar CEO Wayne Hook said there have been delays in deliveries, but consumers will not face rows of empty supermarket shelves.
"Trucks that are coming to the distribution centre have been affected. We are battling to get stock to some our stores, but we are making deliveries slowly."
According to a statement released by Pick 'n Pay, some problems had been reported, but contingency plans were in place should the strike become protracted.
Meanwhile, the South African Petrol Industry Association said it has not been affected and will continue to monitor the situation.
Meanwhile, Satawu leaders have called on workers to intensify their strike on Tuesday in a bid to force employers to give in to the demands of workers.
