Cosatu has expressed "shock" at Pick n Pay's announcement that it is contemplating retrenching about 3 137 workers.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) on Thursday expressed "shock" at Pick n Pay's announcement that it is contemplating retrenching about 3 137 workers.

On Wednesday, Pick n Pay said the retrenchments were in terms of Section 189A and 189 (3) of the Labour Relations Act, "due to operational requirements at the company within the non-management bargaining unit".
