Its all systems go for COSATU National May Day celebrations in North-West

The Congress of South African Trade unions in the North-West is ready to host its National May Day celebrations in the North-West at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday.

The May Day celebration will be addressed by the President of the ANC and the Republic comrade Cyril Ramaphosa. The President of COSATU comrade Zingiswa Losi and the General Secretary of the SACP comrade Blade Nzimande.

The Federation has over the past months been engaged in a mobilisation program throughout the province mobilising workers and communities to attend the national celebrations.

In the process of engaging members and the communities we have been confronted with the challenges that our members are facing on daily basis. We have vowed to address all this challenges as part of our Back Basics programme.

In the remaining three days we will conduct blitz inspection with the department of employment and labour in a number of workplaces in Bojanala area. We will also be doing community visits; loud hailing and pamphleteering in deferent areas in and around Phokeng and Rustenburg.

COSATU and its affiliates will be providing transports for its members and the communities to attend the rally. There will also be performance by national and provincial artist to entertain the attendees to the rally.
