Durban - Formal bargaining structures cannot be replaced by “informal arrangements” by workers, President Jacob Zuma said on Saturday.

“We urge role-players to conduct themselves within the ambit of the Constitution. The right to strike and other labour rights are enshrined in the Constitution,” he said..

“We call on workers not to undermine the right to strike or to protest by engaging in violent action which undermines their cause.”

He congratulated the 2012 matric class and said plans were in place to introduce the National Health Insurance scheme in 2014.

Zuma was addressing several thousand African National Congress members at the party's 101st anniversary celebration at Kings Park stadium in Durban. - Sapa
