COSATU has complied with Section 77 of the Labour Relations Act by serving the necessary notes on NEDLAC. The protest action on 7 October 2016 is therefore protected and although NO WORK NO PAY will apply, NO DISCIPLINARY ACTION should be taken against employees not attending work on that day.
The reasons for the protest are –
The urgent implementation of safe, reliable, integrated and affordable transport system
Scrapping of E-Tolls
Banning of Labour Brokers
Implementation of Decent Work
