COSATU to march against e-tolls [and labour brokers]

Cosatu has vowed to take to Gauteng's highways later this month to protest against e-tolling and labour brokers.

The union federation had held discussions with both the Gauteng and national government in an attempt to persuade them to ban labour brokers and scrap e-tolls, Congress of SA Trade Unions Gauteng provincial secretary Dumisani Dakile said on Tuesday.

"We have also had discussions with the African National Congress in an attempt to deal with these two central issues, and these discussions have not yielded any positive outcomes thus far," he said.

"We have then resolved to engage in a two-day action as part of the ongoing campaigns to demand the banning of the labour brokers and also the scrapping of the e-toll."

The first march on May 24 in Johannesburg would affect the M1, N1, N12, and M2. The second would be in Ekurhuleni on May 31, on the N3, N12, and R21.

"We are busy mobilising the community and various community organisations to be part of the action."

Further details would be announced at a press briefing on May 22.

This conjoining of two issues will make this protest less effective.

Many people are in favour of labour broking to a degree, but are against e-tolling, so they won't join in the protest... and vice versa.
