Report intimidation, Cosatu urges
Cape Town - Some workers were intimidated for taking part in Cosatu's mass protest, the union federation in the Western Cape said on Thursday.
"We have been inundated with reports of threats to workers who participated in the strike, by labour brokers," regional secretary Tony Ehrenreich said.
These actions were clearly unfair labour practice. Workers were within their rights and encouraged to report this behaviour to the Congress of SA Trade Unions.
"Cosatu will ensure that the owners of labour brokers never get to work in this city in any capacity, should they dismiss any worker for participating in the strike."
Cosatu held a countrywide strike on Wednesday against labour brokers and e-tolling.
