Press Release: Immediate

The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU)  has commenced a protected wage strike at National Chicks in Kwa-Zulu Natal.

The strike started last Thursday, 8 August 2018. A strike ballot was conducting amongst workers a month ago, in which 81%  of our 390 members had voted in favour of strike action.

Our members are demanding a 10% wage increase, a 13th cheque and a production bonus. The farmer has offered 7% wage increase only.

National Chicks is part of the Astrid Group which is the sister group of County Fair.

SACTWU is an affiliate of COSATU.
