vavi1The Star reports that Zwelinzima Vavi, secretary general of the SA Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu), on Wednesday said he was pleased with the turnout at the federation’s national strike.  

Speaking before midday to the media on the sidelines of the strike, Vavi said many more workers were on their way to join the strike.  "We are expecting more workers to join us here.  You have seen nothing.  They are coming.  In some areas, the national bus strike affected us.  But we thank all those who offered their cars to make this national shutdown possible," said Vavi.  Scores of workers arrived early in the morning at Newtown Precinct in Johannesburg.
