The Congress of South African Trade Unions says in a statement, it can confirm that it met with the ANC on Monday regarding concerns about the new tax amendment laws and its effects on worker’s retirement funds.

“At our meeting we made clear to the ANC that this issue is the mandate for the workers.  The Congress gave us a mandate to oppose this law and COSATU is not going to abandon that mandate”, said Sizwe Pamla.

He added that… “The ANC understood our reasons why we oppose this law although they understood it, but they couldn’t really come up with a solution to the pass between us and the Government”.

“So they then promised that they were going to go back to engage with treasuries and other government stakeholders. So what does that mean, it means that nothing has changed”, said Pamla.
