Cosatu to go ahead with strike action tomorrow
VAAL TRIANGLE - The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) says it will begin a major strike action this week as ongoing disputes between labour and government continue. Cosatu and other federations and trade unions are embarking on a strike against corruption and the government’s failure to increase public servants’ wages for the year. The federation union and others are calling on all public servants to join the strike. The strike action will include motorcades, pickets and marches. Cosatu general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said while tomorrow’s planned action would not affect the economy as deeply as it ordinarily would due to the COVID-19 pandemic, members had no other option but to withdraw their labour.
