Can government afford to reconsider the imposition of a fee for pollution given the economic stresses that the country is currently facing?
Three Cosatu affiliates have accused Sdumo Dlamini of using a CEC meeting to further their own agenda and have decided to boycott it.
Cosatu's policy is one sector, one union but there could be two, metalworker's union if Numsa has its way.
Cosatu boss Sdumo Dlamini says the rebel unions had only identified unity and cohesion as issues they want to be addressed, not electing new leaders.
Trade union federation says it had planned to hold the meeting, but Numsa says legal intervention was needed to compel it to do so.
Zwelinzima Vavi will not appeal his expulsion from Cosatu as general secretary, unless it holds what he calls a legitimate congress.
Numsa has to figure out exactly what form of socialism its new party will adopt, what it will mobilise around, and with what resources.
Numsa and eight rebel Cosatu affiliates have asked the courts to intervene after eThekwini Municipality withdrew its earlier permission for a march.

Numsa says its members still have to vote on Eskom's offer that they return to work, but the NUM says they have already accepted the deal.
Workers are considering Eskom's offer to reinstate them even though working conditions at the Medupi power plant have not yet been addressed.
Zwelinzima Vavi is ready to fight for or against Cosatu, and he is leaving the decision of the direction of the battle in the hands of workers.
The State Security Agency has been spying on the leader of the already paranoid Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union, Joseph Mathunjwa.
Numsa may find a home at the other end of the political spectrum.
Cosatu's Bheki Ntshalintshali says the report also shows that the auditors had not been able to meet Zwelinzima Vavi, despite attempts to do so.
Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi may feel the wrath of the union federation for not attending its central executive committee meeting.
Both Greece and Spain have a left that doesn't look back, but that is engaged in the moment and looking to the future - something we sorely need.
