COSATU has officially announced their intention to embark on mass action/stay away on Wednesday 5 October 2011. Despite some media coverage focusing on the issue of labour brokers, COSATU intends to use this platform to voice their unhappiness over a number of issues including toll fees, tainted water supplies etc.

Please note that the NEDLAC negotiations continue and that despite this public display by COSATU, progress is being made within the official negotiation forum.

We would like to reassure you of the progress being made via official negotiation channels and to not be intimidated by this public action. Rather, remain firm and do not give in to any “plant level” pressure in respect to flexibility.

Should you have any specific questions in this regard, please do not hesitate to contact your local Global office:
