Cosatu strike aims to bring country to a standstill tomorrow

February 12, 2019

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) plans to bring economic activities in eight provinces to a complete halt tomorrow. The labour federation said the national shutdown was intentionally planned ahead of the budget speech, so that minister Tito Mboweni could respond to the labour sector concerns on job losses, which the federation says should guide his distribution of resources. Cosatu spokesperson, Sizwe Pamla, said they were expecting thousands of workers to take part in the mass action, saying they would participate by simply staying at home and not going to work, while others would join picketing in major cities in eight provinces. He said the point of the strike was to bring everything to a standstill and cause as much inconvenience as possible, affecting both the public and private sector.
