SOFT drinks company ABI said yesterday it would appeal to Cosatu and the CCMA to intervene in the wage labour dispute between itself and the Food and Allied Workers Union .

The company said that two high-level interventions would take place in the coming week in an attempt to halt violence and intimidation that have permeated the ongoing strike currently under way at some ABI depots.

Today, the company is expected to issue a formal request to Cosatu to intervene in the strike.

This will be followed by a meeting at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) tomorrow.

ABI said it would go into discussions with Fawu at the CCMA meeting to get the union to adhere to strike rules and halt violence and intimidation tactics. - Sapa
