Saccawu could appeal approval


The SA Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers’ Union (Saccawu) might appeal against the Competitio­n Tribunal’s approval of Walmart’s 51 percent acquisitio­n of Massmart, the union said yesterday. Saccawu opposed the merger, expressing concern over job security and stifled union organising, and said it believed the tribunal’s imposition of conditions was a “capitulati­on” to conditions already set by Massmart. It felt the preconditi­on that 503 employees retrenched last June be given preference when new job opportunit­ies came up left their livelihood at the discretion of the merging firms. – Sapa
