Nestlé's Merchandisers March in Johannesburg for Dignity and Decent Pay

Nestlé’s merchandisers marched through the city of Johannesburg on October 5th, 2010, demanding that the company ban the use of contract and agency labour. Day in day out, hundreds of sales workers ensure growth of the company's sales and profits in South Africa, but are paid poverty wages and denied the right to join the union. It was the most recent in a series of actions, organised by FAWU to press Nestlé into accepting the responsibility for sub-standard working conditions and low pay. The march started at the Mandela Bridge and went on to the provincial offices of the Department of Labour in Braamfontein.
