The ANC says the expulsion of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa from trade union federation Cosatu is a tragic development.
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa has been expelled from Cosatu after a grueling special central executive committee meeting.
Congress of South African Trade Unions general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi says he will not be out for revenge when he returns to work on Monday.
Numsa says it won’t respond to Cosatu’s demands about whether the union should be suspended or expelled until it received certain documentation.
Cosatu claims the Democratic Alliance’s plan to march to the ANC’s headquarters in Johannesburg is an election stunt and an act of pure opportunism.
Cosatu says it will continue its campaign against e-tolling by staging drive-slows in Gauteng that "irritate a number of politicians".
The decision by President Jacob Zuma to sign the contentious e-toll Bill into law will not deter Cosatu’s election campaign for the ANC.
Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi has accepted the censure imposed on him by Corruption Watch while calling for better protection of women.
Whether charges go ahead against Cosatu’s embattled general secretary or not, the real loser is the trade union federation’s credibility.
Cosatu’s relevance is ebbing away and if this trend continues, it will be a federation for unions of petit-bourgeois government employees.
Numsa says it wants the investigation into Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi to be stopped or it will call for a special congress.
The R150 000 fine imposed on former Fidentia boss J Arthur Brown will not deter white collar crime, the Financial Services Board has said.
Cosatu’s bargaining conference is ‘disgusted’ at members sowing division following reports of auditors investigating Zwelinzima Vavi.
The labour federation’s dismissal of the plan as a reworking of government’s ’90s-era Gear strategy could be a sign of growing divisions.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions is on a dangerous, downward slope, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe has said.
Cosatu leader Zwelinzima Vavi could find himself out in the cold in as little as three months, if his adversaries in the federation have their way.
The ANC appears to have been swayed by Cosatu leader Zwelinzima Vavi’s insistence on changes to the Bill, writes Andisiwe Makinana.
