Nomvume Ralarala, acting president of the South African Trade Union Confederation (Saftu), said they would like more women in senior positions. He argues that women have been marginalized in the workplace.
At the May Day celebrations in Lebowakgomo, Limpopo, Ralarala described it as a blow to have more women in leadership positions.
“Women have been undermined for too long. We are seen as people who need to be led by men, but we say we need to change so that women also deserve to be in leadership positions, whether they work in government jobs, so women are always given priority, we are coming today in May. A day when we say let’s fight together and end this scourge. ”
Saftu remembers May 1st in Bloemfontein:
“Mayal is slowly losing its meaning”
Members of the South African Trade Union Confederation say the first of May is slowly making sense and it is up to the union to revive the spirit of the day.
Members from the Free State the workers’ day and the five years of the union.
The rally will be held at the Petrus Molemela indoor sports center in Bloemfontein.
Saftu spokesman Trevor Shaku said the difficult economic conditions created by the government, they make workers even poorer.
“We also raise issues related to austerity. The government’s budget cuts have led to the ministry failing to provide quality services to our people, who make up 70% of the country’s population. And these are the workers and the poor of this country. So we say that the government needs to reverse the restrictions so that the departments can hire more people, but more importantly, they can ensure that they build the right infrastructure and procure more of the equipment needed for these departments to operate in accordance with the standard. . ”
Picket in front of Parliament
Saftu in Western Cape has called on the government to create more jobs. MEPs held a picket in front of Parliament as part of the Labor Day celebration.
Unemployment figures are worrying, according to Siyabonga Yalwa Provincial President. “76% is not small. Stats SA tells us every day that the unemployment rate is rising. The government needs to put order in place and ensure budget efficiency. Do not cut jobs, but create more jobs. Create industries. There are definitely factories that need to be opened. The Salt River line is a factory line. Those factories are collapsing. Where is the government? “
