Strike looms at Dis-Chem

SACCAWU has said services at Dis-Chem pharmacies will grind to a halt on Wednesday when their members embark on a national strike.

Saccawu's national organiser Thabo Mahlangu said yesterday the union was at loggerheads with the company over recognition of organisational rights. He said about 2000 workers were expected to down tools.

"We have more than 50percent membership against the 15percent requirement to organise and mobilise within the chain of pharmacies." - Vusi Ndlovu
