NEHAWU Comments on the 2010/11 Budget

NEHAWU welcomes the Budget Speech that was tabled before parliament today by the Minister of Finance, Mr Pravin Gordhan and we are happy with the government’s commitment to increase and shift government spending on key priority areas with the intention to create a new growth path for the local economy.

Clothing Workers Strike Continues

Over 50000 clothing workers downed tools Monday after wage negotiations between the South African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (Sactwu) and Appelo Manufactures of Southern Africa deadlocked.

“Section 150 of the Labour Relations Act allows the CCMA to intervene if it feels the resolution of the dispute would be in the public interest,” Kriel said.

Labour Pains

This book has been titled Labour Pains to reflect the intensity of the struggle for gender equality in the trade union movement and society. Produced by the National Labour and Economic Development Institute (NALEDI), the book acknowledges that while progress has been made on the development of policy for gendered change, it argues that little has been achieved in practice in terms of translating commitments into meaningful reality for working class women.
