Stop your neo-liberalism – Cosatu fires a shot across government’s bows

A Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) march on the KwaZulu-Natal  premier’s office on Thursday should be considered as “a shot across the bows”, the federation has warned, insisting that if the state doesn’t stop its “neo-liberal tendencies”, there will be more mass action.

In a memorandum delivered by hundreds of crimson-clad demonstrators, the union said that they would not rest until their demands were met.

Their chief gripe – of a long list – is the threat of retrenchments at Eskom, the SABC and in the mining sector.
