The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) and its affiliates in the public service reiterates its support for the National Day of Action planned for tomorrow.
We call on members of the public to support the nationwide protests planned by FEDUSA, COSATU and SAFTU. We recognise that the government’s insistence on shrinking the wages of public servants will harm the public more. It is in this light that we will form part of the marches which will take place in different cities tomorrow because we are alive to the reality that if we do not wage this struggle against the employer, the public service could collapse.
Workers in the sector want the government to increase their salaries by 10 per cent across the board and guarantee the continued payment of the R1000 cash gratuity beyond March 2023. We support this call, as we did recently through the action initiated by our affiliates the Public Servants Association and Hospersa.
We also want to make a clarion call to all our members and the federation’s affiliates in other sectors to support the National Day of Action.
