Vavi: Workers must never get in bed with employers

Vavi: Workers must never get in bed with employers

General Secretary of the South African Federation of Trade Unions Zwelinzima Vavi insists that the newly formed union will be a force to be reckoned with, precisely because its workers will not be in bed with employers.

Vavi said the biggest flaw with the Congress of South African Trade Unions - of which he was once a leader - is that it had allowed for the lines between worker and employer to be blurred. He said Cosatu's future was bleak, adding that it was ultimately the workers who suffered because of it. 

Speaking at the Adult Educators Progressive Union in KwaZulu-Natal this week, Vavi said trade unions needed to be militant and democratic, adding that they should never get into bed with employers.

"Wherever trade unions get in bed with the employers, workers suffer. And unfortunately Cosatu has been involved in a vigorous love making with a party," said Vavi.
