Sun City complex closed by strike
Friday 29 July 1994
Mr Prior said the resort management was still attempting to clarify the cause of the strike at Sun City, which includes a complex of hotels, golf courses and a casino in the former Bophuthatswana homeland.
He said the biggest union, the South African Commercial Catering and Allied Workers' Union (SACCAWU) had not presented any demands and no formal dispute had been declared. Wage negotiations were 'at an advanced stage', Mr Prior went on, but 'it appears we have a minority of employees trying to undermine SACCAWU at Sun City.' 'We have lost millions (of rands) already - we had to cancel a major medical conference this weekend which involved 2,800 bed- nights. You can imagine what that cost,' Mr Prior said.
