The Democratic Alliance has called
for the Congress of South African Trade Union to come clean regarding
disciplinary cases of its members.
It is alleged these members have been
involved in acts of intimidation, violence and the destruction of property
during a strike.
DA MP of Labour Ian Ollis said Cosatu
has opposed the proposal for the Private Member’s Bill that would prevent
strike related violence.
Ollis said the DA is now requesting
Cosatu to provide information over the past three years of individual members
that have been disciplined that have their memberships of their relevant trade
union Cosatu revoked or that other disciplinary measures have been taken.
“This will prove once and for all
that Cosatu is serious about taking disciplinary action Ollis added.
