SOUTH AFRICAN education, health and mine workers called yesterday for all workers to rally behind union confederation Cosatu’s September 27 general strike against corruption, job losses and “state capture.”

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union, miners’ union NUM and nurses’ union DENOSA all issued statements of support for the strike.

The NUM said that “the strike should be used as a platform for workers, in general, to voice out their displeasure on how this country is run and that the looting of state resources and corrupt activities should be condemned in its totality.”

Cosatu general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said that union officials should challenge employers to close for the day if they oppose corruption so that workers can attend marches across the country.
