MAY Day falls on 1 May and Cosatu will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year at various venues across the country and speakers and deployees will address the rallies in the various provinces.

The main May Day rally in Durban will be addressed by President Jacob Zuma and Cosatu president Sidumo Dlamini.

In a statement the union said this rally will celebrate its 30th anniversary and reposition Cosatu towards radical economic transformation.

The union’s war cry “An injury to one is an injury to all” is proclaimed from its goals of unity­ among workers, and war to its class enemy­, defending their rights and intensifying workplace-related struggles and in society, building a strong African trade union movement and intensifying internal solidarity as a union.

The union called members to join in its celebration as matters of being one union, one country, protection of rights, abolishing e-tolls, fighting for minimum wages, defence of centralisation bargaining, smashing xenophobia and defending Cosatu will be discussed.
