Shoprite Nigeria employees across Nigeria are protesting for their wages, reveal new owner set to take over in April
The Shoprite employees have protested unpaid gratuity, as they accuse the South African-owned supermarket of selling off the Nigerian subsidiary without seeing through their memorandum of understanding (MOU).
According to one of the protesters in a video shared online, Shoprite and the national body for the employees were supposed to meet last month, February, over wages of the employees, but the meeting didn’t hold.
One of the workers said the protest was necessary so that their years of labour would not go unrewarded.
ShopRite is leaving Nigeria without settling her Staffs, The problem now is that ShopRite Nigeria is yet to settle their staffs who they engaged through a signed contract, presently all the Staffs all over Nigeria are protesting today.
