Following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision to declare a national state of disaster on Sunday and in an attempt to help limit the spread of Covid-19 virus; the Cosatu National Office Bearers have taken a decision to postpone all Cosatu Provincial Shop Stewards Council meetings scheduled for March/April 2020. The Federation has also canceled the May Day 2020 commemoration and other big meetings. We encourage all Cosatu affiliated unions to do the same and postpone big meetings until further notice.
Unions should continue to explore other available ways of representing workers and cooperate with other social partners to respond to the COVID-19 virus and lessen the impact that it will have on workers in general.
