cosatuBusinessLive reports that labour federation Cosatu has intensified its opposition to the employment tax incentive because of the government’s refusal to exclude labour brokers from the scheme.  

Matthew Parks, Cosatu’s parliamentary co-ordinator, said on Thursday that the federation was going to support the latest incentive, but rejected it because Cosatu’s demand for the exclusion of labour broking companies and outsourced services providers was ignored.  He said these types of firms did not support decent work and fair labour practices.  The state has initiated a review of the incentive legislation, which expires in December.  Submissions from a range of stakeholders will be heard in Parliament on Wednesday.
