AT THE POINT OF PRODUCTION, HOW CAN WORKERS SHIFT THE CLASS BALANCE OF POWER?
Date: 31 August 2019
Venue: 4th floor Museum Africa, Newtown, Johannesburg
John Appolis (GIWUSA)
Khongelani Hlungwani (CWAO and SAFTU representative)
Host/facilitator: Dale Mckinley (ILRIG)
Each panellist will provide an input of no more than 15 minutes, following which there will be an open engagement/discussion involving participants and the panel. This will allow us to unpack the nature of the current workplace regime, the responses of workers and their organisations (including what the responses say about the state of trade unions and their relevance) and then round off with possible ways forward for workers at the point of production.
The last section of the event will be set aside for the launch of CWAO’s first booklet in their ‘Labour Broker Workers are Organising Series’. The booklet’s worker co-author, Khongelani Hlungwani (also a panellist) will introduce the booklet which will be available to event participants.
