Preamble; This Report is dedicated to comrade Violet Seboni, who was prematurely taken away from the movement. Comrade Violet was a good example of the shop floor based and shop-stewards activism that has characterised COSATU for more than two decades.
Editorial Comment A call to workers . Cosatu calls on all workers to embark on a 24-hour strike on 2 June 1997. The strike, which was originally planned for 12 May 1997, is in support of our demands for a progressive Basic Conditions of Employment Bill.
