Saturday, November 4th, 2017

On the 27th of October 2017, SATUCC held a successful 10th Delegates’ Congress in Dar-es-salaam (Tanzania) which elected its first female President Comrade Zingiswa Losi who happens to be the Second Deputy President at COSATU (One of the three affiliates of SATUCC in South Africa).

In her acceptance speech, President Zingiswa Losi stated that  “the responsibility is both an honour and privilege that must be taken seriously and with great humility. May I, first of all, immediately indicate that COSATU, FEDUSA and NACTU feel collectively honoured to accept this massive responsibility to work with the whole region and the new leadership collective to build and strengthen SATUCC. The future belongs to workers and those who fight for it”.

The 10th Delegates’ Congress was preceded by three activities: a Seminar on International Labour Standards which was held on the 26th of October and two conferences for the women and youth which run concurrently on the 25th of October and ushered in their respective top leaders (Interim leadership for the youth).

Key outcomes from the 10th Delegates Congress will be posted soon.
