FAWU Members At Goal Wholesalers Embark On Strike

2 June 2016

More than a hundred members of FAWU employed by Goal Wholesalers in Phillippi Industria, Cape Town embarked on a protected strike on Thursday, 26 May 2016. Workers are fed up with their ruthless employer and the union demands the following:

  • A 15 % wage increase across the board;
  • Double the normal hourly rate on Sundays and public holidays;
  • 4 Weeks annual leave and an annual bonus;
  • Wage inequalities to be addressed;
  • 4 Months paid maternity leave (at 45% of salary);
  • Protective clothing to be issued at the company`s expense instead of workers having to purchase their own.

Workers are determined to strike until their demands are met.
