The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in the Western Cape staged a protest against the price of bread outside parliament yesterday.

Cosatu provincial general secretary Tony Ehrenreich said the protest involved handing over a memorandum to government representatives from the premier's office and the Department of Trade and Industry.

The bread price rose sharply again last week, between 35c and 40c a loaf.

Ehrenreich said he expected about 200 people at the protest. - Sapa
