Shoprite Workers Embark On Protests In Ibadan, Shut Down Company Indefinitely by Omihanifa: 3:02am On Apr 03
Shoprite workers at Ring Road branch, Ibadan, on Friday, embarked on another round of protest, shutting down the company indefinitely.

The workers, under the aegis of National Union of Shop and Distributive Employees (NUSDE), vowed that the company would remain shut until management acceded to their demands.

The chairman, NUSDE, Shoprite branch, Mr Williams Peter, said the union was using the Easter period to press home its demands since dialogue had failed.

He stated that all Shoprite stores had been shut down nationwide because the negotiation between the union and the management had been deadlocked.

Peter attributed the indefinite strike to the alleged refusal of the management to meet up with the demands of the union.

He said that although the planned transfer of Shoprite to a new owner had been withheld for now, “we see this Easter period as the right time to get management to listen to us and accede to our demands
.

However, if the management is not ready to listen to us, it then means that Shoprite is not ready to open this April. We will shut the company down until they listen to us.

“Give us what we want and we will then be ready to discuss with the new investors and have a new agreement with them,” the union leader said
.

Meanwhile, the management of the company has described the industrial action embarked upon by the workers as ‘unlawful’.

The management, in a memo by its Divisional Human Resources Manager, Adeola Kagho, said that it was considering appropriate action to be taken against the striking workers, saying this might include their summary dismissal, should they fail to return to work.

Please note that your conduct is in breach of your contract of employment, company rules and procedures and the applicable federal legislation.

“The company is not prepared to tolerate your participation in any unlawful industrial action.

“The company is now considering appropriate action to be taken against you and this may include your summary dismissal, should you disregard the instruction/ultimatum hereunder.

“You are accordingly instructed to return to work immediately in an orderly and diligent manner,” Kagho said.

She urged the workers to follow the ‘established company’s internal procedure, should they wish to raise any grievance.


The union’s demands include better conditions of service and payoff whenever the company decides to change its ownership.

The union had embarked on a warning strike on March 2. (NAN)

Staff : Give us what we want and we will then be ready to discuss with the new investors and have a new agreement with them,” the union leader said.

Management : “Please note that your conduct is in breach of your contract of employment, company rules and procedures and the applicable federal legislation.
The company is not prepared to tolerate your participation in any unlawful industrial action.
Where there is no law, there is no crime.

Civil liberties at work. The colonial/missionaries enslaved our ancestors for transatlantic slave trade, then because of our nativity. However today we are well informed.

You can't dictate how a private individual wants to run his/her business. Selling is more profitable to the owners, the workers can't dictate to the owner when to sell, who to sell to, how it will be sold. If you don't like it find your level. They are not selling you, but their property/investment.

Re: Shoprite Workers Embark On Protests In Ibadan, Shut Down Company Indefinitely by Wealthyone: 1:58pm On Apr 03
This is totally wrong in a private organization. No union should be tolerated in a private setting... Imagine the employees that ran the organization down with loss still want to negotiate with new investors! Such gut. It is now obvious these people were stealing and corrupted as a staff. They should dismiss the yeye people and employ the ones ready to work.

The perishable foods and fruits in shoprite would be bad now. Imagine making additional loss for employer by locking down and making demands.

Entrepreneurship is bae....how I wish the contacts of all these workers was at my disposal I would have introduced them to some very profiting online engagements that'll see to them earning weekly ....
Working 9 - 5 is fast becoming obsolete with the vast number of online earning activities.
BTW for anyone(both young and old) interested in small scale ROI via allowing their money work for you whilst you CASH OUT not less than $5 on a daily as an INVESTOR.....
Gone are the days of slaving or having just one income means...Nowadays i keep gearing for more streams of income.....Presently i earn from my new P2P account @ www.p2ptrade.io
If you are a youth and still not earning online via skills or reliable credible investment platforms then it's your undoing not those STINKY PONZI SCHEMES though!!!
More so pls avoid reaching out to me if you have a GET RICH QUICK MENTALITY!!!
Also stop sending PMs or DMs just kindly reach me on Facebook via my FB ID on my ptofile!!!!

Proactivity Leads To Productivity!!!

SMH Labor is always never organized, that’s why I’ll abolish it when I get to into power.

You can’t strong arm your employer to do what you want. Is it the union that employed you or ShopRite?

What happened to industrial courts?

:- in saner climes, the government is meant to probe into shoprite's activities and see where the justice or injustice is coming from , but no.
