Lusaka - South Africa's Shoprite Holdings has agreed to salary increases of 15 to 34 percent for its Zambian workforce following a wage strike, the president of Zambia's main union in the grocery industry said on Tuesday.

“We signed the agreement last week and the lowest paid worker will now get about 1,500 kwacha ($280) and the highest paid will get close to 3,000 per month,” said Robert Munsanje, president of the National Union of Commercial and Industrial Workers. - Reuters
