Durban - Congress of South African Trade Unions will on Friday add their voices to the masses calling for an end to the upsurge in the price of petrol.
Cosatu KwaZulu-Natal provincial secretary, Edwin Mkhize, a protest will take place at the Mariannhill Toll Plaza from 10am.
Mkhize said they view the constant increase of the petrol price as a serious indictment.
“If we continue to be dormant in resolving this crisis, South Africans will continue to suffer the perpetual increase in the cost of living. We first condemned the petrol price hike in June this year,” he said.
Mkhize said Cosatu has noticed that there is general discontent in society about the fuel increase as well as the increase in Value Added Tax which does not match or come close to the salaries earned by workers.
