Solidarity for ever
21 November 2003
With reference to a report in today's edition of the Mail & Guardian, "Song and Dance over COSATU recording", the Congress of South African Trade Unions is pleased to announce that all outstanding problems between COSATU and Gallo Music, over the live recording of workers songs by the elite of South Africa's musicians at COSATU's National Congress, have been resolved to the satisfaction of all parties.
The CD, DVD, video and cassette, entitled "Solidarity for ever" are now in production and will be released as planned at a gala evening in Braamfontein on Monday 1 December, the date of COSATU's 18th anniversary. This is an historic event, the first ex ample of such a collaboration between trade unions and musicians in the world. It will make a major contribution to the promotion of South African workers' culture.
