The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) has a lodged a Section 77 Protest Action Notice under the Labour Relations Act with the National Economic Development and Labour Council (NEDLAC) to protest against the government’s failure to appoint competent, accountable, responsive and responsible management at most of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) such as the South African Airways (SAA), power utility Eskom, communication giant Telkom, military electronics company Denel and the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).

 

These SOEs employ members of major FEDUSA affiliates such as Airlines Pilots Association – South Africa (ALPSA –SA) and UASA – The Union, among others. FEDUSA’s protest action, which will employ a range of strategies such as stayaways, go-slows, work to rule, rolling mass action, intermittent work stoppages, complete cessation of work, organised protest action refusal to perform overtime and/or Sunday work and refusal to work on public holidays, will be specifically targeted at those individuals who serve on the executive management of these parastatals, on their Boards of Directors and those that serve on Board Sub-Committees such as Finance, Audit and Procurement Committees.

Labour will be part of Team South Africa who will attend the World Economic Forum 2017 (WEF2017) which starts on Tuesday next week in Geneva, Switzerland, under the theme Responsive and Responsible Leadership. The theme for WEF2017 is based on the realization that large segments of society throughout the world are increasingly unhappy with the status quo as they feel left out of the benefits of economic development and social progress said FEDUSA General Secretary Dennis George.

 

Their global situation will only become more uncertain with the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its impact on future employment. Responsive and Responsible Leadership therefore entails a deeper commitment to inclusive development and equitable growth, both nationally and globally,” the WEF says on its website. Labour’s mission to WEF 2017 is an integral part of Team South Africa, the tripartite collective made up of NEDLAC’s social partners of Business, Government and Labour, ongoing efforts of achieving higher inclusive economic growth and job creation for the country by continuously meeting with international investors and rating agencies.

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) has welcomed the marked increase in the overall pass rate for candidates who wrote the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations from 70.4 percent in 2015 to 76.2 percent in 2016. This figure excludes repeaters or those leaners who had either failed Grade 11 twice or were over-aged but were allowed to progress to Grade 12. Such learners are also known as progressed learners.

“However, with the progressed learners included, the 2016 NSC overall pass rate stands at 72.5%, which represents 442 672 candidates who have passed, the second largest in history.  Well done to the Class of 2016,” Basic Education Minister Angie Motshega said.

“The number of learners qualifying for admission to Bachelor studies is 162 374; the number passes with a Diploma is 179 619; the number of passes with Higher Certificates is 100 486; and the number of passes with NSC is 68.

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) has welcomed the Gauteng High Court decision to award R450 000 to former South African Airways (SAA) pilot, Senior Captain John Harty, in defamation damages. The entire ordeal was simply distasteful and unbecoming of the national carrier in its inconspicuous silence and unsupportive manner towards Senior Captain Harty who served the airline with distinction, alongside the integral role he played as Chairperson of the FEDUSA – affiliated Airline Pilots Association of South Africa (ALPA – SA), said FEDUSA General Secretary, Dennis George.
