BASIC CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT BILL

23 October 1997

The Tripartite Alliance met last nigh in Cape Town to take the previous discussions on the Basic Conditions of Employment Bill forward. We are confirming that substantial progress was registered in this meeting. Most of the gaps that existed between the Alliance on core issues have been closed and some areas significantly reduced.

COSATU shall be convening a special Executive Committee on Friday 24 October 1997. We shall give a report back to the Exco and seek endorsement of the agreement with the Alliance. In the meantime we shall not disclose the content of the agreement or progress on matters as referred to in paragraph one.

COSATU has in the light of this progress decided to suspend the General Strike scheduled for the 27 -28 October 1997 pending the finalisation of the bill in parliament. The COSATU Central Executive Committee meeting scheduled for 04- 06 November 1997 will make further assessment of how our concerns have been resolved and take the final decision on the matter of the General Strike and mass mobilisation.
