Sun City denies Cosatu strike claims

sun city Sun City denies Cosatu strike claims

Sun International has denied a claim by Cosatu in the North West that workers were on strike at the Sun City resort.

Sun International spokeswoman Tamra Veley today dismissed claims that workers would not report for duty.

She said they were aware members of the Congress of SA Trade Unions in the province had intentions to strike.

“Sun City is not on strike. We received notification to strike from the union on Sunday and we are writing to them asking for clarification,” Veley said in a brief statement.

Yesterday, Cosatu said workers were striking in support of several demands, including the dismissal of management members.

This came after management members allegedly ordered that two female workers accused of stealing R400 be stripped and searched by security guards, provincial secretary Solly Phetoe said.

He claimed about half of workers were on strike on yesterday and the action would intensify on Tuesday.

The workers were members of the SA Commercial Catering and Allied Workers’ Union and the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union.
