COSATU Medium Term Budget Policy Statement Submission to Parliament

COSATU will present its submissions on government's 2017/18 Medium Term Budget Policy Statement at 10am today, at the Old Assembly Chamber, Parliament. Our submission includes key concerns and proposals that workers have with regards to:

  • The governance crises in the state and state owned enterprises, in particular SAA, SABC, SASSA, Eskom, PRASA, SSA and Denel.
  • SOE bail outs and attempts to raid the PIC.
  • The economic crisis with a rising unemployment rate of 36.2%.
  • The need for a Presidential Jobs Summit and Economic Stimulus and Jobs Creation Plan.
  • State expenditure and debt levels.
  • Nuclear energy and electricity tariffs.
  • The SASSA outsourcing debacle.
  • The need to fast track the rolling out of a pro-poor NHI.
  • School infrastructure delays.
  • The need to deliver free and affordable tertiary education.
  • The need for a national water crisis plan.
