The Congress of South African Trade Union has called
for the reinstatement of the 450 workers who were dismissed because of shortage
of water in the Supreme Poultry Company.
Cosatu had a meeting with the employer this week. Cosatu is arguing that it is not the
responsibility of workers to provide water but the responsibility of the
Cosatu North West Provincial Secretary Solly Phetoe
said we met with the employers on Wednesday and they confirmed that it is not
their responsibility of workers and managers so why workers must be punished.
“We proceeding with our march our demand is that those
workers must be reinstated unconditional and we can go to the City in terms of
discussing with the management what is that must happen between ourselves and
the employers to approach the municipality in dealing with that matter.” Phetoe
