Workers around the world are observing Workers’ Day, known as Labour Day in most countries and referred to as May Day in South Africa.

This day is observed to celebrate the achievements of the workers and to spread awareness about the exploitation that the workers face.

SA’s biggest labour federation, Cosatu, is holding a virtual celebration instead of a rally due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Cosatu President, Zingiswa Losi, will deliver the main May Day speech.

Her address will be preceded by messages of support from the federation’s alliance partners, which will be delivered by ANC President, Cyril Ramaphosa and SACP General Secretary, Dr Blade Nzimande.
