National Strike and Bus Strike
You have no reason to fear tomorrow’s national strike – Saftu
On Wednesday Saftu‚ its affiliates and allies in civil society will be on the streets in a general strike in protest against the national minimum wage and amendments to the labour law.
But since the briefing held by the federation on Monday there have been messages circulating in different cities and on social media‚ warning people to stay indoors and not to allow their children to go to school.
Saftu is leading the one-day industrial action in protest to a raft of draft labour laws, which includes a bill on the national minimum wage. The message says South Africans not participating in the mass action should stay off the roads, public transport and keep their children out of school.
