3rd COSATU Limpopo Chris Hani Brigade Graduation Ceremony
The Congress of South African Trade Unions in Limpopo is to hold its 3rd Chris Hani Brigade Graduation Ceremony on the 14th December 2016, 09h00, at Polokwane Royal Hotel. The 7th COSATU Congress, held in September 2000, passed a resolution which proposed the establishment of the Chris Hani Institute as an "academy to provide education and training for selected youth, stewards and officials." This resolution identified the urgent need in the current period, for cadre development with the following objectives:
- to educate a cadre of working class leadership to understand and analyse the political economy of the changing global and South African realities from the standpoint of the interest of the working class.
- to build organization.
- to build the capacity of trade unionists and shop stewards to engage.
- to develop a layer of intellectual representatives of the working class grounded in our theory.
Our province has been implementing the Chris Hani Brigade resolution for the past years with more than 100 shopstewards having graduated so far. This year, 2016, a total number of 31 shopstewards from COSATU unions will be graduating on the date as mentioned.
The media is therefore invited to cover and report about the event
