Pelonomi Asele and the other ex-workers filed an urgent application with the Industrial Court last week alleging failure by Delta Dairies to provide them with work from July last year to date. They also alleged failure by the company to pay their salaries.

According to court papers, the matter was first referred to the District Labour Office in January 15 this year for mediation on February 4. However, it was adjourned to February 20 as per the request of the company.
