South African union protests over Sasol's black share plan
Solidarity's chief executive Dirk Hermann said the union had filed an unfair racial discrimination case at the labour court in an attempt to get white workers included in the scheme.
During the march, Solidarity leaders delivered a memorandum to both Sasol and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange complaining about being excluded from the share plan.
"If South Africa accepts racial exclusion as normal it’s a bad day for South African democracy," Hermann told union members holding placards with slogans written in Afrikaans saying "my work also has worth" and "stop racial segregation". ■
