South African trade unions have vowed to continue fighting against retrenchments at a time where the country’s unemployment rate is at an all-time high.

South Africa’s unemployment rate stands at 35.3 percent in the fourth quarter.

It comes as the world observes international Worker’s Day which recognizes the struggles and rights of workers in a democratic country.

Meanwhile, Cosatu’s Parliamentary Coordinator Matthew Parks says the struggles of the working class remains relevant because they tend to work in horrific working conditions, which has knock-on effects in all spheres.

Parks adds that due to this, it emphasizes the importance of workers joining labour unions
