The Congress of South African
Trade Union in the Western Cape said the victory against the City of Cape Town
in the Equality Court, is a great victory for workers and communities.
Cosatu took the City of Cape
Town to court over the roll-out of the MyCiTi bus service in Mitchell’s Plain
Meanwhile the City of Cape
Town in a statement said it was evident right from the start that Cosatu’s
complaint, which criticised the standard of the service offered in the metro
south-east before it had even been launched, was unfounded.
Cosatu’s Tony Ehrenreich said
until after all these demands have been made as essential been considered and
put in place by the city even though it tries to deny that these are as the
result of Cosatu’s pressure.
Tony added that what is clear
is that, there is a vastly different transport experience between the two areas.
Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha has the sub-standard service while the
Milnerton and Blaauberg are well serviced.
“We will continue to monitor
the City of Cape Town and we will take them back to Eqaulity Court should they
not continue to advance greater equality in Public transport.” Ehrenreich said.
