Johannesburg – Even though the Cabinet reshuffle caused damage to the economy, the Federation of Trade Unions South Africa (Fedusa) intends to work together with the new finance minister.
This is according to the federation’s general secretary Dennis George. He spoke to Fin24 following a meeting with the new Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba, his deputy Sfiso Buthelezi and the Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa at the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) offices in Rosebank.
Fedusa was meant to have a media briefing following the meeting, but this was called off by the deputy president. When Fin24 spoke to George about this, he said he was equally surprised to find that there were no journalists at Nedlac following the meeting and had no knowledge of the cancellation.
