COSATU continues rallying behind workers with disabilities
24 Nov 2020
COSATU has continued to rally behind workers with disabilities, in light of this month being observed as Disability Month, with shop stewards being tasked with engaging such workers on their challenges.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) took to Twitter on Monday, 23 November 2020, to continue showing its support for workers with disabilities, as November is being observed as Disability Month. The latest task given to shop stewards, with regards to workers with disabilities, is to engage such workers in the workplace. The engagement is meant to give the workers with disabilities a platform and opportunity to air their challenges getting to and from work.
COSATU shop stewards were initially tasked with reviewing and addressing workplace policies in terms of inclusivity of workers with disabilities. COSATU has yet to provide detailed feedback on the progress of the initiative.
Of late, COSATU has been concerned with matters such as the protest action at South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) and advancing the narratives under its inclusive umbrella body. Despite this, COSATU has been revealing some of its efforts to support workers with disabilities in recent weeks.
