Johannesburg - Woolworths Holdings [JSE:WHL] must open all job positions to all race groups or face action, Solidarity said on Tuesday.

The trade union intended starting a campaign against the retailer if it did not change job advertisements on its website stating that only black, coloured and Indian candidates would be considered, deputy general secretary Dirk Hermann said.

"Solidarity demands that the group amend the advertisements before noon on Wednesday... The Employment Equity Act does not make provision for the exclusion of any race as far as applications are concerned."

Woolworths denied claims that it was reserving all jobs for designated groups - blacks, coloureds, Indians, women, and people with disabilities.

"The Employment Equity Act expects all South African companies with more than 50 employees to plan our workforce by race, gender and disability," the company said in a statement.
