Heneiken workers prepare to march against ‘sex for shifts’

4 April 2019
 

Heineken workers are preparing to march against sexual abuse at the beer giant’s Sedibeng brewery.

The Heineken Workers Forum announced this week that it will be marching against an alleged “sex for shifts” system playing out at the brewery.

“Women experience extreme violence because of these unequal power relations,” the statement reads. “Supervisors expect women to give sex for being scheduled in good shifts, get a better job or even just keep the job.
 

Youth for Survival's Pledge for Parity

International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on 8 March and in South Africa we also celebrate Women’s Day on 9 August every year. South Africa comes in at eighth place on a world classification table of women in national parliament. These are all developments that deserve to be applauded as the nation is taking strides towards the ultimate goal of achieving women’s rights. However, in the same instance it is never enough until we reach the peak of equality in all spheres, when women’s dignity and rights can be fairly observed in our nation.
