The World Federation of Trade Unions [WFTU] Trade Union International Public Services and Allied [TUI PS & A] sends its heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and the community of mine workers on the passing away of comrade David Sipunzi’ a tested internationalist revolutionary unionist and WFTU Vice President of Africa English.
He was instrumental in the revival and strengthening of WFTU, and its affiliates in Africa. TUIPS&A was working with comrade Sipunzi on a strategy to unite all WFTU affiliates in Africa and work towards the defense of collective bargaining and rights of workers on the shop floor. David Sipunzi passes away when the world is engulfed in the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic and a new battle of finding the vaccine for the protection of human kind.
WFTU has lost one of the hard working dedicated comrade who fought for the unity of workers around the world and in particular in Africa.
In his memory TUI-PS&A will continue to mobilize for the unity of workers under the banner of the mother body WFTU. We will also continue our campaigns, on anti privatisation and antiimperialism.
