Trade union to approach US Embassy on AGOA benefits
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.
