South Africa: Cosatu NW to Picket Aurora Case Hearing On 25th August 2014

press release

The Congress of South African Trade Unions has learned that the hearing of the case against the Aurora Mining Company to claim over R28 million owed to workers by the liquidators has been set down for 25th August 2014 at the North Gauteng High Court.

We are informed that the Aurora directors are planning to request another postponement on this matter for six months so they can continue with their exploitation of workers who are not working even though they are owed money by those directors.

We are requesting the court to deny the postponement and get the matter completed on 25th August 2014 so that workers and all the creditors get what is due to them. Workers are dying due to hunger and stress created by Aurora bosses.

We are praying that the court will be in the side of those who are dying and make sure that this time Aurora pays what they have been ripping off from the poor for many years.

COSATU, jointly with the affected workers, will be mobilising those workers to be there at the North Gauteng High Court on 25th August 2014 9h00 am.

We call on the media to expose the exploiters who do not care about the lives of the poor workers and their families.

For more information feel free to call COSATU NW Provincial Secretary Solly Phetoe on 0823044055
