• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Cosatu KZN threatens stayaway

Sapa
Durban - Cosatu in KwaZulu-Natal is organising a one-day stayaway for October 5, provincial secretary Zet Luzipo said on Monday.

He said this formed part of the Cosatu provincial branch's efforts to cajole its national office into organising a national stayaway against labour broking.

"We want labour brokers to be banned in this country," he told reporters in Durban.

"All Cosatu unions will take part in the stayaway. The stayaway is not limited to Cosatu members, but to anyone who is against this modern-day slavery."

Cosatu in KwaZulu-Natal claims a membership of 300 000.

Luzipo said Cosatu had resolved to start a process which would require all its leaders in the province to declare their financial and business interests.

"We intend to lobby for this to happen at a national level as well."

Cosatu was doing this because it believed its leaders should set an example.

"We believe you cannot lead the workers and become part of the exploiters. You can't be a jackal and a goat at the same time."
