COSATU & FAWU media reports

Cape Town - Failure to meet a deadline for a review of the sectoral determination

for agriculture could result in a repeat of violent strikes, Cosatu said on Tuesday.

Western Cape Congress of SA Trade Unions secretary Tony Ehrenreich said Labour

Minister Mildred Oliphant was adding fuel to the fire by saying it would be impossible

to meet the 4 December deadline.

He said he understood wage reviews took time, but her remarks undermined

negotiations between AgriSA and unions.

"The minister should be supporting this process, but in her statement she sounds

more like the minister of farmers instead of the minister of labour."  T o download this article, click here.
