Later today the Congress of South African Trade Unions will be issuing their annual end-of-year report which looks back at the highlights of 2008 and forward to the challenges of 2009.
Spokesperson for COSATU Patrick Craven said that “today’s report will cover a very number range of issues. It begins as it should for a worker for a workers organisation with the challenges which we faced as workers, particularly the rising cost of food, electricity and earlier in the year fuel and the growing threat to jobs as a result of the world economic recession.”
Craven also said that the report will also cover various international interventions, such as the world trade talks, the ongoing crisis in Zimbabwe and the crisis that is developing in Swaziland.
