Saftu announces meeting points for Wednesday's nationwide strike

27 April 2018

South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) and affiliated unions will institute a shutdown of all public transport services around the country in protest against the minimum wage hourly rate.

Saftu workers protest in the Johannesburg CBD on Wednesday 25 April 2018.

Saftu had noted the decision of the parliamentary portfolio committee on labour to refer the National Minimum Wage (NMW) Bill back to the labour department to be redrafted so that it included the public input received by the committee, Saftu said in a statement.

The federation has more than 700,000 members, according to its unaudited figures, and is led by former Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.

Saftu acting spokesperson Patrick Craven told TimesLive that all workers were protected from participating in the strike. There is absolutely no reason for anyone not to leave home tomorrow or to live their normal life. Chabalala said this is one of the matters they'll be raising come the day of the strike.

The federation says the legislation will continue to entrench poverty and that proposed amendments to labour laws will undermine the workers' right to strike.

Trains are not expected to be affected by the strike.

Marchers in the city will assemble at SABC Park and will march to the Departments of Labour and Social Development at 10:00.
