Fawu against exploitation of workers by other unions

On Sunday 30 September the Food and Allied Worker Union (Fawu) held a meeting at Lukhanyo Primary School hall to discuss how workers can advance their rights.

According to Mishack Letsela, secretary of Fawu Western Cape, the purpose of the meeting was to drive recruitment.

“As Fawu we cannot sit idly by and watch as other trade unions recruit workers just to exploit them further through the collection of subscription fees, and become rich as their workers get poorer,” he said.

Letsela seized the opportunity to inform workers and make them aware of what their rights are, especially after the protests in Hermanus that took place earlier this year.

“We deem it unfair of any trade union to mislead workers with wrong legislation information and empty promises of massive increases and ridiculous minimum wages of around R12 500 per month.

“Trade unions cannot act as irresponsibly as abandoning workers during strikes owing to the personal agendas of union bosses.”

Letsela emphasised that Fawu wants to protect the rights of workers, advance workers’ interests and secure job security.
