Let South Africans starve from hunger - Tony Ehrenreich

Jacob Zuma & Tony Ehrenreich – Cosatu will launch a campaign against retailer companies which it says pay farmers low amounts for the products produced on South African farms.

Cosatu’s Western Cape provincial secretary, Tony Ehrenreich’s, latest move:

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in the Western Cape is planning another protest in the agricultural sector – but this time it is targeting major retailers in the province.

Cosatu will launch a campaign against retailer companies which it says pay farmers low amounts for the products produced on South African farms.

The protest is set to take place in three weeks’ time.

Cosatu’s provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich says retailers are paying farmers extremely low prices for their products.

Ehrenreich says they have won their fight to ensure a higher daily wage for farmworkers and will now turn their attention to retailers.

“There’s needs to be a change in the pricing of agriculture products if we are to have a sustainable industry.”

On Monday, Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant announced a new minimum wage for farmworkers, increasing the amount from R69 per day to R105.

This followed several months of violent protests in several Western Cape towns.

Farmworkers were demanding improved living conditions and a daily wage of R150.

Ehrenreich says this is an ongoing campaign until the entire value chain in the agriculture sector is improved.

    This Ehrenreich is deranged. May he’s got some kind of unknown toxic virus on his brain. I hope he doesnt recover.

  3. Coming from an executive member of the CO-RULING Cosatu trade union movement of South Africa, this is a very strange comment to make!
