DisChemANA reports that retail firm Dis-Chem said on Thursday that approximately 760 employees had gone on strike at its Midrand distribution centre and head office but trading and operations at its 131 stores were not affected.  

The company claimed that the strikers, who were affiliated to the National Union of Public Service and Allied Workers (Nupsaw), comprised less than 6% of its workforce.  The company stated:  “Their dispute relates primarily to union organisational rights as well as disagreement on decisions relating to discretionary bonus payments to a portion of its members.  Dis-Chem has initiated discussions with the affected employees in an effort to arrive at a common understanding of certain issues and agree on a suitable resolution.”
