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.
