4.13 Economic empowerment
NACTU sees empowerment as having two components
Developing skills of those disadvantaged by Apartheid and cultural approach to be able to take positions of responsibility in the
Distribution of economic wealth to those disadvantaged by Apartheid policies
The approach of NACTU to the empowerment question
is the following:
State must create the necessary environment to enable
Those who have economic power should have a duty to empower the disadvantaged
The disadvantaged should have commitment to empowerment
Empowerment should not be done at the expense of labour
standards, job security of workers, their health and safety and social security
In this regard NACTU sees a role of all social partners in the process.
Those disempowerd by Apartheid include workers, the disabled women, the rural
people and the small black business.
