The National Officials of the African National Congress (ANC) have met with the National Office Bearers of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) following COSATU`s opposition to the signing into law of the Tax Administration Laws Amendment Act.
The ANC has understood COSATU`s opposition to the Act to derive mainly from lack of adequate consultation on the amendments contained therein. Consequently, the ANC has facilitated discussion between the COSATU and the National Treasury to engage on the Act and the federation`s concerns on it. The discussions are already ongoing and the ANC urges all stakeholders to support this process as a step to resolving the current impasse.
