    TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHall Products, a leading provider of single-use solutions including plastics, paper products and janitorial supplies, announced today that the company's development and implementation of customized programs for its customers has resulted in an 20% increase in sales for the company over a one year period.

    One example of a customized program WhiteHall Products implemented involved a manufacturer that was having an issue with storage containers. There was a need for two sizes of containers, which required two sizes of lids, and the client was constantly losing or running short or misplacing lids. Whitehall Products provided the solution by developing a line of different sized storage containers that all used the same size lid.

    Women's rights are being disregarded in the contract cleaning sector, and a strike for better wages will continue until demands are met, a union said on Wednesday.

    “These people work long hours, use chemicals which could lead to lung problems, have no maternity leave, no provident fund and absolutely no benefits. In this day and age that is unacceptable,” the SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) said.

    About 85 percent of Satawu workers in the ongoing strike were women, some of them single parents, national spokeswoman Mamokgethi Molopyane said.
