It’s all Systems Go as Numsa Organises its Members for End of Month’s Anti-Corruption Strike

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) has in the last few weeks held a number of workplace meetings to garner support amongst members for a nationwide anti-corruption march scheduled for Wednesday 30 September. Numsa is a key member of a coalition of more than 100 organisations known as Unite Against Corruption.
