It’s another decisive week for the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu). The federation holds a special central executive committee (CEC) meeting, with some affiliates still refusing to attend until metalworkers union Numsa’s expulsion is reversed. This week’s meeting has to finalise details of a special Cosatu congress that must be held in July according to a court order. Cosatu president S’dumo Dlamini is being boxed in to convene the congress that could vote him out and reverse the decision to axe Zwelinzima Vavi. And now Numsa is demanding to participate in the congress and have the delegates decide on its expulsion. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
