The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) is mobilising its members to join in a nation-wide socio-economic strike against corruption, retrenchment, gender-based violence, unemployment and attacks on collective bargaining.


This is set to take place on the 7th of October 2020, which is also the Global day for Decent work. Workers have been asked to stay at home rather than congregate in the streets amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federation states that this will be a new form of striking whereby people stay at home and not congregate in the streets for their own safety.


Motorcades are planned for Tshwane, Polokwane, Mbombela, Rustenburg, Mthatha, Bloemfontein and a few more not yet confirmed. Only a few people will be joining the motorcade.


COSATU stated they have full support from NEDLAC. See COSATU’S full statement;
