FAWU Statement About The Uprisings At Sunday Citrus Valley`s Areas of ADDO & Kirkwood

The Food and Allied Workers Union (FAWU) is aware that the uprisings at Addo and Kirkwood areas of the Sunday`s Citrus Valley in the Eastern Cape was sparked by the current 3-week old strike action by about 80 members of the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (NUMSA) at FRCC farm and processing plant.

FAWU, which has about 200 members in the same operation and several hundred members in seven other farms in the area, is not on strike as it negotiates separately from NUMSA, something that serves as a lesson to both FAWU and NUMSA given that lack of cooperation has led to no solidarity. National leaders of both unions scheduled a meeting for Wednesday.

While we appreciate community support to striking workers we call on SA National Civics Organization (SANCO) in the area to allow labour unions to lead in the process of engagement with employers on these dispute issues while retaining their support to workers.

Meanwhile, we call on employers to meaningfully engage with labour unions in resolving issues that gave rise to strike by NUMSA members.

For more information and further clarifications contact Katishi Masemola, General Secretary, at 082 467 2509, Ernest Mmako, E Cape Organizer, at 063 097 9184.
