Cosatu to meet with e-toll review panel
The union will hand over documents seeking to convince the team why the project must be scrapped.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier David Makhura's e-toll review panel has started collecting information from interested parties to assess the impact of the multi-billion rand project on motorists.
Leadership of the Congress of South African Trade Unions is expected to meet with the panel on Wednesday regarding the implementation of e-tolls.
Cosatu's Patrick Craven says the trade union federation will meet with the review panel on Wednesday.
He says the union will hand over documents seeking to convince the team why the multi-billion rand project must be scrapped.
"We will also touch on the lack of consultation in the early stages."
Last month, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters told the South African National Roads Agency Limited not to continue prosecuting motorists who have e-toll debt until all the problems with the system have been dealt with.
Two prosecutors have already been appointed to deal with e-toll court cases once government decides to go ahead with prosecutions.
The Gauteng review panel has to submit its final report with recommendations to the provincial government by the end of November.
The controversial system went live on 3 December after months of legal wrangling, protests and calls for civil disobedience.
