Trade union to ap­proach US Em­bassy on AGOA ben­e­fits

Observer on Saturday - - News -

TUCOSWA Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Mduduzi Gina has re­vealed that as a fed­er­a­tion they will ap­proach the US Em­bassy to find out what other ben­e­fits come with the coun­try’s re-ad­mis­sion to AGOA.

Gina said it would seem that the fo­cus now is on the tex­tile in­dus­try. Gina said as much as it is un­der­stood that there will be gar­ment fac­to­ries which will be opened and a lot of peo­ple will be get­ting jobs and they ap­pre­ci­ate that, but it must be noted that the are other ben­e­fits which come with the read­mis­sion and as TUCOSWA they will ex­plore those ben­e­fits.

Gina said he knows that once they get to know about those ben­e­fits women will be able to use them to their ad­van­tage.

Gina fur­ther rub­bished re­ports that there are cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als who claim that they are the ones who brought AGOA back. Gina said these so called ‘cap­i­tal­ists’ are the same peo­ple who shiver when is­sues of hu­man rights are dis­cussed.
