On the occasion of the General Strike in South Africa on September 27th, the World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its class solidarity to COSATU and the South African working class in their struggle for the emancipation of the workers.
We stand firmly by the side of COSATU and all our affiliated organizations in the country, namely NEHAWU, POPCRU, NUM, CEPPWAWU for their decision to go on strike on September 27th.
We trust that the common initiatives of SACP and COSATU will bring a better future to the workers and people of South Africa.
We call all the militant, class-oriented trade union organizations in South Africa to mobilize the workers to intensify their struggles for the benefits of the South African people.
We support COSATU in its role in the frontline of the struggles for a better future, for a world without exploitation of man by man.
