President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to participate in Cosatu’s International Workers’ Day celebrations on Saturday morning.
The virtual event to honour the struggle of workers’ rights in South Africa comes amid a deadlock between the government and unions in the public sector over wage negotiations.
Ramaphosa is expected to deliver the ANC’s message of support to workers while Cosatu president Zingiswa Losi will give the main address at Cosatu House in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
SACP general-secretary Blade Nzimande will also take part in the May Day event.
