DURBAN - South Africans should brace for a national workers' shutdown later in April as the 700,000 member-strong South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) plans to go on strike. 

The trade union federation held a shop stewards' meeting in Durban on Sunday, ahead of its one year anniversary.

It took aim at the Ramaphosa administration, saying it does not have workers' interests at heart.

One of the trade union federation's main gripes is the national minimum wage. Saftu affiliate, Numsa, called the R3,500 monthly minimum salary a slave wage.
