According to IOL, the National Union of South African Mineworkers' (NUMSA's) will be holding a protected march today.


And it says that the march is against corruption and that it intends to hit the public and private sectors in the country.

The union will head through the streets of Johannesburg in order to get the government's, as well as business', attention.

According to the article, 'the action is protected in line with Section 77 of the labour relations act, meaning workers who take part in the marches will be protected from disciplinary action by bosses.'

It is also stated that the strike could create problems with regard to struggling companies' survival.
