FEDUSA DISAPPOINTED BY GOVERNMENT NO SHOW 12 September 2011 

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) is highly disappointed with Government’s latest no show at the National Economic Development and Labour Council (NEDLAC) this morning. Representatives from government departments were scheduled to meet with Organised Business and Organised Labour (FEDUSA and COSATU). COSATU recently joined FEDUSA’s Section 77 Protest Action against Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) and waste water treatment and wished to formally add additional concerns relating to water quality and accessibility.

UASA welcomes drop in murder rate, but remains cynical

Is it just dwindeling rhetoric?

Climate change may bring new opportunities
