Cosatu has vowed to continue its fight against the user-pays principle on Gauteng freeways until the government listens to the people.

"December 3 will represent the day on which our government has refused to listen to the views of the people and the poor," Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) Gauteng secretary Dumisani Dakile said on Tuesday.

He said the government had demonstrated its stubbornness and unwillingness to co-operate with the workers.

"It represents a clear demonstration of cadres who have been power-drunk and believe that they could do as they so wish," Dakile told reporters in Johannesburg.

The e-tolling of Gauteng's highways came into effect on Tuesday.
