fedusa thumb medium80 85City Press reports that according to Dennis George, general secretary of the Federation of Unions of SA (Fedusa), government is not serious about addressing the country’s economic crisis and its actions clearly demonstrated this.  

On the sidelines of the federation’s leadership strategic indaba last week, he lambasted government for downplaying the country’s economic woes and said:  “We have economic problems.  We also have political problems and a lack of political creditability on the side of President Jacob Zuma.  These political problems have to be addressed first because you will not be able to move forward convincingly.”  George added that there was no state-owned company that was not captured.  Fedusa had earlier issued a statement lambasting government for failing to attend a Nedlac task team meeting without tendering an apology.  George said the no-show was another clear indication that government was not willing to prioritise the current state of the economy.
