SASBO- the finance union, has pledged its support for OUTA’s cause with a R50,000 donation toward its legal costs and a moral stance taken to voice their opinion on the e-Tolling matter.
“Sasbo is a national trade union affiliated to COSATU, that works for its members who are employees within the financial industry. We have 68 000 members and were mandated by our members to support OUTA as our challenge and stance against the e-Tolling of Gauteng freeways” says Joe Kokela, the President of SASBO.
“We are very encouraged by SASBO’s decision as this is another body that is representative of a large constituency of citizens that are prepared to stand up and be heard on the e- toll matter” says Wayne Duvenage, OUTA’s Chairperson. “While we have had hundreds of businesses that have contributed and supported the cause, it is nice to see SASBO joining the movement and vocalizing their opinion, whilst also signing up as a Supporting Association of OUTA”
