SACTWU expects strike ballot count to reach 40,000

Aug '13
The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has set itself a target to strike ballot 40,000 clothing workers over a three week period, in regard to its unresolved wage negotiations in the clothing industry.

The balloting process started on 1 August 2013, and it is closing in on target. As at close of business yesterday, it has concluded the ballot for 35,916 workers employed in 339 factories and expects to reach its 40,000 target by Thursday this week.

SACTWU has accordingly commenced ballot counting from August 14 and expect to finalise counting by this Friday. However, initial indications (from those ballots already counted) show overwhelming support for strike action.

It will make a formal announcement about the exact outcomes of the strike ballot once it has finalised counting.
