Abstract: The submission of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was presented at the Institutional Hearing: Business and Labour. COSATU’s submission is premised on the conviction that Apartheid was more than a political system of institutionalized racism, but that the true character of the institutionalized racism was, in fact, racial capitalism. Hence in its submission COSATU argues that (white) business was a beneficiary of this system to the extent that it was not in its interest to oppose Apartheid, but indeed actively promoted this system at the expense of the black working classes.
