AR stands alongside NAFAU in Shoprite strike

14 January 2021 | Labour


The Affirmative Repositioning (AR) movement has combined forces with the Namibian Food and Allied Workers’ Union (NAFAU) in support of Shoprite workers during their industrial action that started in December.

“AR will reinforce NAFAU in the fight against the workers of Shoprite. We send a clarion call to our activists countrywide to shut down all stores forming part of the Shoprite group of companies,” said AR spokesperson, Simon Amunime in a media statement released on Tuesday.

Shoprite employees have been participating in a countrywide strike, demanding better wages as well as benefits. Negotiations with the company reached a deadlock after the matter was taken to the office of the Labour Commissioner in December.

Through NAFAU, workers demand that contract workers who have been working for more than 12 months, be employed permanently. They also want transport and housing allowances as well as medical aid.
The workers of the Shoprite Group Namibia, which includes Shoprite, USave and Checkers, are set to continue with the demonstration until their demands are met.
