Cosatu vows to fight ‘neo-liberal offensive’ and retrenchments

In response to what it called a “neo-liberal offensive” targeting workers, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) will march on the KwaZulu-Natal premier’s office in the provincial capital on Thursday.

Cosatu’s Edwin Mkhize said retrenchments in the public sector, most notably at the SABC, had prompted their call to action.

“This is the beginning of our response as Cosatu to this renewed attack against the workers and the poor. Jobs are being shed, adding to growing of unemployment,” he said.
