The meeting, which will be chaired by President Jacob Zuma, will bring together Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, economic cluster ministers and the leadership of labour federation Cosatu, the Federation of Unions of SA (Fedusa), as well as the National Council of Trade Unions (Nactu).  The Presidency said yesterday:  “The meeting is scheduled to reflect on the work being done by government, business and labour to reignite growth so that jobs can be saved and created in the country, given the difficult economic climate and other issues of interest to labour and government.”  Fedusa said on Monday that it supported the implementation of the Nine Point Plan, which prioritises the urgent interventions designed to accelerate inclusive economic growth and create decent jobs through transforming the economy and increasing investments.
