FEDUSA Workers Month Roadshows Get Underway

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA)’s annual month-long Workers’ Month Roadshows get underway tomorrow morning with a workshop in Johannesburg. Instead of holding mass rallies on May Day, FEDUSA has traditionally opted for direct interactions with its 20 affiliates at workshops spread throughout all the nine provinces during the month of May at which substantial issues affecting workers are debated.

The central theme for the 2017 Roadshows is “FEDUSA’s Response to the Fourth Industrial Revolution” for which a highly informative Booklet has been prepared for delegates and members of the Media, will be presented by an International Labour Organizations (ILO) team from their southern Africa regional office in Pretoria.

FEDUSA’s national leadership, President Godfrey Selematsela, General Secretary Dennis George and Deputy General Secretary Riefdah Ajam will lead discussions on bread and better issues affecting our members at present, including gender and youth involvement in the operations of the union federation, and low economic growth that has been exacerbated by the recent sovereign downgrading to junk status by credit rating agencies Standard & Poor, and Fitch.

The union federation’s leaders will be available to field questions from the Media relating to the Roadshows and the central theme of FEDUSA’s response 4th Industrial Revolution at all its regions as scheduled below:
