It’s all systems go for the COSATU North West public sector demonstration

The Congress of South African Trade Unions(COSATU) in the North West is ready to lead the public sector demonstration in the province as part of the National Day of Action on 22 November 2022.

The provincial demonstration will be held at Montshiwa Stadium. Thereafter, members will proceed to the legislature, where a memorandum of demands will the handed over to the provincial government.

The protest action is part of our campaign for decent working conditions and benefits for all the workers in the country. It also forms part of our objective to defend the collective bargaining process which government is noticeably dubiously leading at the detriment of workers, undermining their rights to bargain.

The current economic tide in our country has put workers in difficult financial positions.  Employers continue to increase the salaries and benefits of their executives and simultaneously reduce the benefits of the workers.

This status quo will only perpetuate the inequalities in our country which will suffocate the workers even further, exacerbating the already high poverty levels.
