Saftu wishes to see more women in positions of leadership

The South African Federation of Trade Union (Saftu) acting president Nomvume Ralarala says they want more women in leadership positions. She argues that women have been marginalised in the workplace.

Speaking during May Day celebrations in Lebowakgomo, Limpopo, Ralarala has decried the lack of more women in leadership positions as a scourge.

“For far too long women have been undermined. We are regarded as people who must be led by men, but we’re saying we must change that women too deserve to be in senior positions whether in government in workplaces so all the time women will be prioritised we’re coming today on this May Day to say let’s fight together and end that scourge.”

Saftu is commemorating May Day in Bloemfontein:

‘May Day slowly losing its meaning’

Saftu Spokesperson, Trevor Shaku says the difficult economic conditions created by the government are rendering workers even poorer.

“We are also raising issues around austerity. The budget cuts of government have led to the government department being unable to deliver quality services to our people who are constituting 70% of the population of this country. And those are workers and the poor people of this country. So, we are saying government must reverse its austerity cuts so that the departments can be able to hire more people, but more importantly, can ensure that they build adequate infrastructure, can procure more equipment that’s required to ensure that these departments perform up to standard.”
