CONGRESS OF SOUTH AFRICAN TRADE UNIONS

Every day is May day!

We will enter into this war inspired by those who walked this road before us, the stalwarts that laid the foundation for us. They have left us with a great sense of responsibility towards the Federation and indeed our country. We remain inspired by among others Bill Andrews, Moses Kotane, Dora Tamana, Chief Albert Luthuli, J La Guma, JB Marks, Lilian Ngoyi, Francis Baard, Vuyisile Mini, Poobie Naidoo, Ruth First, Oliver Tambo, Alpheus Malivha, Chris Hani, Joe Slovo, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu, Moses Mabhida, Stephen Dlamini, Harry Gwala, Lawrence Phokanoka, Elijah Barayi, Mzala Nxumalo, Thozamile Gqwetha, Jabu Ndlovu, Mbuyi Ngwenda, Violet Seboni the list is endless, John Gomom and indeed Nelson Mandela.
