Fawu members go on strike in Ceres
Fawu members employed by Ceres Fruit Growers want the company to increase their salaries by 12 percent.
CAPE TOWN - More than 1,000 workers affiliated to the Food and Allied Workers' Union (Fawu) have gone on strike for higher wages in Ceres.
The Fawu members employed by Ceres Fruit Growers want the company to increase their salaries by 12 percent but claim the firm is only offering half that.
Fawu spokesperson Dominique Swartz-Martin said, "The workers are also frustrated about the profit sharing scheme at the moment, which seems to be benefiting management only. We view this as complete and utter discrimination and we are willing fight tooth and nail to see that they also get a share of that scheme."
