Fawu starts fish factory strike


About 6 000 Food and Allied Workers’ Union members in the pelagic fishing sector began a strike at plants on the West Coast, in Gansbaai and Hout Bay on Friday. Spokeswoma­n Dominique Swartz said this came after negotiatio­ns over the demand for a relief fund for seasonal workers failed to produce results. The Commission for Conciliati­on, Mediation and Arbitratio­n hosted talks between the union and Premier Fishing, Oceana, Gansbaai Marine, Suid-Oranje, Saldanha Group and Marine Products. – Sapa
