Cosatu protests against bread price increase

The Congress of South African Trade Unions will be having a protest at Parliament on Sunday along with a number of other organisations against the bread price increase.

The union is demanding that governments set the price of bread at an affordable level and minimise the sale of it to the poorer communities.

“The cost should be no more than R4,50 a loaf of bread as it costs less than R4,00 to produce a loaf of bread,” says Cosatu spokesperson, Tony Erenreich.

A memorandum will be handed over to the government and Tiger Brands who Cosatu feels has been responsible for the increase in the bread price.
