Farmworker strike set to go ahead

Jan 07 2013 11:10

Cape Town - The Bowsi Agricultural Workers Union of South Africa says farmworkers will continue to strike until their demands for a pay increase are met. 

Eye Witness News reported that thousands of workers flocked on Sunday to a meeting at De Doorns stadium in the Western Cape to discuss a planned demonstration for Wednesday. 

Trade union federation Cosatu also confirmed last week that protest action would indeed go ahead. 

Workers are demanding a wage increase of R150 a day from R69 and better working conditions.
