Cosatu may strike during Cup

2010-05-27 14:41

Johannesburg - Cosatu has not ruled out the possibility of a strike over high electricity tariffs during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

"We don't know, it depends on the two processes underway," Congress of SA Trade Unions general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi said at a media briefing on Thursday after a meeting of Cosatu leadership.

"Nobody must say 'hold on there are visitor's around, don't do anything about this matter'. Our struggles... are bigger than the World Cup."

Cosatu would meet with respondents to a section 77 handed over to Nedlac on June 14.

Its decision to strike would depend on the outcome of the meeting and on talks underway with the ANC on broader energy matters in the country.
