Dacre Haddon Issues Public Challenge to SAMWU

www.MyPE.co.za: The
Democratic Alliance publically challenges the provincial leadership of
Samwu to tell the citizens of the Eastern Cape the following:

  1. What monetary compensation (if any) they intend paying as a
    result of
    the damage caused by their members during the strike.
  2. What disciplinary action (if any) they intend taking
    against their
    members who damaged property and intimidated citizens.

Kings Beach RubbishThe DA looks forward to their positive reply in this regard.

The Bill of Rights in our Constitution section 23 (2) (c) allows
everyone the right to strike and equally allows protection of equality
section 9 of the Bill of Rights.

While recognising the right of Samwu to strike they have intimidated
people, caused countless acts of violence, trashed streets and caused
civil disobedience throughout the country and in this province.

Should Samwu not take action as requested in this matter then it will
show that they have only their self interest at heart and not that of
the citizens they purport to serve.

The enjoyment and exercising of one’s rights is a two edged
sword. For every right enjoyed there is an equal
responsibility to behave and conduct oneself in an orderly manner
without infringing on the rights of the others.

The usual excuse and cop-out that Samwu cannot be held liable for the
action of their members is weak. If they called the strike then
correspondingly they have a duty to ensure this is conducted in a
peaceful and orderly way.

The DA in the Eastern Cape is considering following the example of the
DA in Gauteng instituting civil and criminal litigation on
Samwu. The DA today also submitted a motion to the National
Parliament via NCOP member Elza van Lingen, following the actions of
municipal strikers in Hankey.

The rights of the Constitution must be protected at all costs and every
citizen is entitled to enjoy security under the constitution. It is
time to come clean, Samwu.
