"FAWU members and ABI workers' demands for quality and permanent jobs to be retained and expanded are reasonable and noble (…) We demand from ABI Management to engage in sincere and genuine negotiations with FAWU with a view to concluding an agreement on issues in dispute and to undertake not to victimize workers who were on strike and shop stewards for their union role during the strike after the strike is over”.

This was the position adopted by the second Coca-Cola Alliance Steering Committee meeting in a special resolution on the situation at SAB-owned ABI, a Coca-Cola bottler in South Africa, where workers were on strike for more than 7 weeks for better wages and against casual employment. The strike was subsequently settled February 9, 2010.
