Unions not backing down on taking legal action against Steinhoff

Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) general secretary Dennis George says together with the representatives from Public Servant Association (PSA) had a constructive meeting, as well as inspected relevant document at Steinhoff's offices in Stellenbosch.

He says they looked at documents from 2002 to date, and they will collaborate the documents with the research from Viceroy and turn it into proper evidence.

The unions are planning to take further steps against Steinhoff.

We looked at the documents to see which important people attended the AGM because that is where these documents are supposed to be approved and scrutinised.

Dennis George, Fedusa general secretary

We are very sad to see that the standards have dropped, but we think it is critical for us to take the process forward and bring the people responsible to book.

Dennis George, Fedusa general secretary

According to George, the documents show that Steinhoff used pension fund money to acquire other businesses in the retail sector. Then that didn't go well for them because the return where not as anticipated, he adds.
