The Labour Court today ruled in favour of the Namibian Food and Allied Workers Union (NAFAU) against Shoprite for violating strike rules.
The union took the retailer to court for violating strike rules by recruiting new employees while existing employees are on strike.
According to the rules, employers may not require non-striking workers to perform duties of legally striking employees.
NAFAU was also granted access to inspect shops at any time to ensure Shoprite is following the strike rules.
The full judgment will be made available on Monday morning.
