The South African Clothing
and Textile Workers Union briefed the media on the outcomes of their Special
Extended Regional Executive Committee Meeting.
The SACTWU General
Secretary, Andre Kriel highlighted the actions they have taken in order to
finalize their strike mandate concerning the Good Hope Centre being leased out
to film companies.
Among the long list of actions are
handing a memorandum over to the Mayor Patricia De Lile requesting for her to
respond within seven days and up to date no response has been made by the Mayor
or the City of Cape Town.
Last week Thursday
SACTWU held their regional shop steward council to discuss this matter, 300
shop stewards were present and a decision was made on whether to launch strike
action against the city of Cape Town.
However before a strike
is launched SACTWU has to engage in a National Economic Development and Labour
Council process, if that fails then SACTWU will take to the streets and
mobilize the City of Cape Town through protest action.
