DEPARTMENT OF TRADE & INDUSTRY TO INTERVENE

 MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY MALIZOLE DIKO
UDM NATIONAL SECRETARY

The strike in the motor manufacturing industry has reached heights, which are unbearable.  The economy of the Eastern Cape is in danger as it relies on this industry for growth.

It is clear that the parties concerned have problems reaching agreements.

The UDM now call on the department of trade and industry to intervene. Getting direct investment is paramount for job creation in South Africa, where our people are loosing jobs on a daily basis.

Government intervention can save the day.
