In a statement, the Congress of the South African Trade Union says it rejects the legal threats by the Department of Basic Education directed at SADTU, after the union called on its members to join a picket today, protesting overcrowding, at township and rural schools.

Cosatu National Spokesperson Sizwe Pamla says the issues that are being raised by SADTU have an effect on the health of both teachers and learners.

He says “COSATU is calling on all teachers and workers in general to join the SADTU picket and push back against the offensive that is currently directed at the teachers union”.

Pamla says “The federation has concluded that the department of Basic Education is deliberately colluding with those, who have political scores to settle with SADTU”. 

The department has allowed leaks and the misinformation campaign to be used to attack SADTU despite the report of the Ministerial Task Team making it very clear that SADTU as an organization was not found guilty of selling any posts, Pamla concluded.
