FACTORY workers unions have cancelled their demonstration that was scheduled for Friday, after police turned down their request to march.

The deputy General Secretary of the National Clothing Textile and Allied Workers Union (NACTWU), Tšepang Makakole said although they were not allowed to take to the streets, they will do everything in their power to secure the required permit in order to continue with their plans.

He said starting from Friday morning; no factory worker is expected at work as they are picketing outside their factory gates until they have a permit in their hands.

Mr Makakole said they want the government to immediately release the gazette for 2020/2021 which they have been requesting, before they could conclude their plans.
