strike thumb medium85 85Reuters reports that Heineken South Africa said on Tuesday that workers contracted to a company that provided it with logistics services were on strike at its Sedibeng Brewery.  

The work stoppage had apparently caused minimal disruptions.  The beer and cider maker said the workers, who are employed by Imperial Managed Logistics, were protesting over poor conditions at a shelter provided for bottle sorters stationed at the brewery.  The firm claimed it had improved the shelter.  Heineken said it expected the strike to be discontinued after the labour court ruled earlier on Tuesday in favour of Imperial to interdict the action.  Heineken’s Sedibeng Brewery, located in the south of Johannesburg, was launched in 2010.
