all the resolution of the Federation are carried and that members get
service at all cost.

On killing of Farm workers


The PEC was disturbed with number of Farm workers killed whilst on duty,
there are recent reported of farm workers been killed by machinery /
equipments whilst performing their duties.


We are rolling a programme on fighting both farmers and Department of labour
on this continuous undermining of humans right and those of farm workers.


On Local Government elections


The PEC received a report on the results and the performance of ANC in all


The PEC expressed it concerns on why performance or percentage has declined
since the 2011 elections.


These are some contributing factors:


.    In fight during selection processes which delayed campaigning.


.    The emergence of Forum4service delivery


.    Poor mobilization and no proper arrangement made to make sure that all
voters go and vote on the 03 August 2016


The relation amongst Alliance partners also contributed.


The PEC resolve that the Provincial Alliance Council must be convene for an
in-depth assessment.


On filling of vacant posts in public service


The PEC resolved that this matter of moratorium which affects most of Public
sector unions must be confronted and be dealt with, there has been
engagement on the matter but no progress is reported. So the PEC resolved
that the matter must be part of the PoA.


On COSATU meeting with EXCO


The PEC welcomed the initiative and request that the meeting be use to
address issues of the workers speedily.


These are what must be done.


.    Affiliates must meet with MEC's on monthly basis.


.    COSATU with its Affiliates to meet quarterly with EXCO to look on




We will continue to defend the Federation and its members all cost. We are
busy engaging with FAWU members to come back home, COSATU is the only hope
for workers.
