Quote of the day

"African states need strong trade unions in order to have a strong labour movement that can keep the government on its toes...Without a strong labour movement, I don't see how we can strengthen our governance...The government cannot work without trade unions. They can ruffle feathers sometimes, but if they don't do that, we are not kept on our toes".

South African Labour Minister Membathisi Mdadlana in his opening message to the AU Labour and Social Affairs Commission on Monday 18 April as reported by The Star newspaper.
