SACP supports Comair workers in fight against ‘exploitation’

The South African Communist Party (SACP) has expressed its solidarity and support for airline Comair workers who have embarked on industrial action in support of their demands.

The workers had engaged in the strike action after wage negotiations for a multi-year collective bargaining agreement with the company deadlocked‚ the SACP said.

Comair operates both Kulula and British Airways in South Africa.

“The SACP is calling on all its members and leaders not to use Kulula and British Airways as that will amount to crossing the picket line and will act against the workers’ struggle to fight exploitation‚” the SACP said in a statement.
