NUMSA 25TH ANNIVERSARY RALLIES DETAILS FOR GAUTENG – EASTERN CAPE AND WESTERN CAPE: SATURDAY 26 MAY 2012

25 May 2012, Posted in Press Releases

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) will be holding its 25TH Anniversary Rallies in the provinces of Gauteng, Eastern Cape and Western Cape, this coming Saturday 26 May 2012.

The 25TH Anniversary Rallies coincide with the annual Centenary celebrations of our glorious movement, the African National Congress (ANC), and we shall use our Rallies to celebrate and appreciate the role played by workers and trade unionists alike in building a strong, militant and revolutionary ANC that is committed in building a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and egalitarian society as envisaged in the Freedom Charter.

The metalworkers will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary of unbroken struggle amidst the ideological onslaught waged against the working class by apartheid apologists and mouthpieces of white monopoly capital, the Democratic Alliance (DA) through the Youth Wage Subsidy, and the proposed new Labour Law Amendments by government and business which are threatening to undermine workers hard won right to strike.

These Anniversary Rallies will be addressed by the National Office Bearers (NOB’s) of the union, namely NUMSA President CEDRIC GINA, General Secretary IRVIN JIM, Deputy General Secretary KARL CLOETE and leaders from COSATU, SACP, ANC and SANCO
