Union set to mobilise pharmacy workers over pay


The FNV trade union has called a national action meeting for 1 June for workers covered by the pharmacies collective agreement. This follows the collapse of negotiations after the fifth round of bargaining with the Mediq employers’ organisation which made a pay offer of 4%, well below the level sought by the union. The FNV says that this not only fails to ensure protection of workers’ purchasing power but also ignores the challenges facing the sector with staffing shortages, high workloads and many instances of aggression from customers.
