CAPE TOWN - The South African Federation of Trade Unions and Numsa will march to Parliament to raise concerns about several labour issues.

These include the proposed national minimum wage and amendments to laws.

The minimum wage bill was meant to be implemented next month but was delayed for further consultations.

Saftu says the legislation will continue to entrench poverty.

The unions believe amendments to labour laws would undermine the right to strike.

Marchers will hand over their memorandum to the Speaker of the National Assembly.

Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town is warning of MyCiti bus disruptions due to the march.
