Cosatu in the Western Cape said today that reintroducing a labour law that requires unions to conduct ballots before strikes would not really help to curb violent acts.

Cosatu’s Mike Louw said there are bigger issues like temporary labour being introduced during the strike and police that is introduced is very frustrating to many strikers.

He added that to suggest that the ballot is going to cure violence is not correct.

Louw was speaking at the second round of public briefings on amendments to the Labour Relations Act and the Basic Conditions to the Employment Act.
