COSATU KZN is extremely disturbed and dismayed by the stance by AgriSA and AgriWestern Cape towards the strike in the Western Cape by farmworkers. We call on all farm owners to heed to the call and demands of farm workers. Conditions of farm workers have been continuously undermined for so long time.
We must also warn those farm owners in other parts of the country, including KZN not see this as far from their own province(s) because the future cannot be predicted. Workers have a right to demand improvement of their financial situation even if there is a sectoral determination in place. There can be no freedom when farm workers are super exploited, let alone economic emancipation.
