Johannesburg - About 4 500 Rainbow Chicken [JSE:RBW] workers at processing and farm plants entered the second week of their strike on Thursday, their union said.

Workers from the Western Cape, North West, Mpumalanga, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape plants were demanding better wages, reduced working hours and a backdated payment to April 2011, Food and Allied Workers Union spokesperson Dominique Swartz said.

The processing workers were demanding a R500 wage increase, while farm workers wanted a R4 400 minimum wage.

Swartz said the union and company were not in agreement about the backdated payment.

Rainbow Chickens' spokesperson Stephen Heaths could not immediately be reached for comment.
