LABOUR: Pick n Pay And SACCAWU Reach Agreement
Recent Western Cape Business News
Pick n Pay announced yesterday that the company and SACCAWU had reached an agreement that would result in no forcible retrenchments due to operational requirements, and a flexible workforce.
The agreement allows for a flexible workforce of both full-time and variable-time employees (VTEs) under changed working conditions.
This will allow Pick n Pay to have the right number of employees in the business at the right times, in line with customer trends and demands.
This in turn will provide for a flexible workforce, which will translate into a more efficient business. Pick n Pay confirmed that it offered voluntary early retirement and this was taken up by some 650 employees.
In addition, the numbers of employees considered for retrenchments reduced over the period that consultations took place for various reasons including dismissal, resignation and retirement.
