cosatuNews24 reports that labour federation Cosatu plans to recoup over R5m in affiliation fees from its former member, the Food and Allied Workers Union (Fawu).  

Briefing media on Cosatu’s central executive committee meeting held this week, general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said:  “The central executive committee noted that Fawu’s leadership have succeeded to push for the union’s disaffiliation with Cosatu and join a non-existent federation.  We are not surprised by the decision, but we are planning to meet with many Fawu members, including provincial structures, that have made it clear they are not leaving the federation,” he said.  Fawu general secretary Katishi Masemola confirmed they owed Cosatu affiliation fees and said they planned to take legal advice.  “If we are advised to pay, we will pay,” Masemola stated.
