Cosatu CEC rejects new e-tolling system
Cosatu affiliates have met over the past three days and reaffirmed their call to have e-tolling scrapped.
JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) says its Central Executive Committee (CEC) has rejected the newly structured e-tolling system and so-called concessions by the state.
Cosatu's affiliates have met over the past three days and have reaffirmed their call to have e-tolling scrapped.
The federation's Gauteng structures made submissions to the e-tolls review panel set up by Premier David Makhura at which leaders called for a different funding method to pay off the bills for upgraded highways.
Cosatu's Acting General Secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali explains.
"The CEC has rejected the new toll dispensation because the e-tolls system is a form of privatising public goods."
