4.7 Economic Policy
In 1992 NACTU began to discuss alternative macro-economic policy options and at 1994 congress the basic tenants of the RDP were accepted, however, NACTU recognised the importance of elaborating on these as the RDP may become an empty acronym.
The NACTU congress called for:
Involvement of NACTU structures at all levels of society to ensure that RDP is a reality
Work with other federations to develop a document that will reflect a broad trade union approach that should as its aim be to create sustainable and quality jobs.
The Social Equity and Job Creation Document published by COSATU, NACTU and FEDSAL is a result of this approach.
