The Congress of South African Trade Union in KwaZulu- Natal has expressed its disappointment that parliament seems to be dragging its feet on the issue of labour brokers and completely rejects the six-month proposal under a labour broker.

Cosatu Provincial Secretary Zet Luzipho said they remain adamant that, in no way a democratic state must regulate modern day slavery and human trafficking.

“The PEC agreed that they have intensified their campaign against labour brokers because there is no way that different works can co-exist side by side with labour brokers. They have also given all the unions and locals that are responsible to identify employers who continue to survivor by employing people through labour brokers,” Luzipho said

Meanwhile the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Executive Committee said it rejects with all contempt it deserves the signing into law of the bill that seeks to grant Sanral the right to plough on with E-tolls all over the country.

President Jacob Zuma signed into law a bill which frees up the South African National Roads Agency Limited to launch the multibillion Rand project.  

Cosatu Provincial Secretary Zet Luzipho said they are disappointed that government signed the bill into law.

“We completely rejected this with all the contempt it deserves and we have said we commit ourselves to fight this until the last drop of our blood and we are convinced that there will never be e-tolls in KwaZulu-Natal,” Luzipho added.
