numsaEWN reports that the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) has congratulated the Food and Allied Workers’ Union (Fawu) on what it called a historic decision to disaffiliate from labour federation Cosatu.  

Fawu announced its decision to leave the federation on Wednesday, saying the resolution taken was irreversible.  Numsa’s Patrick Craven said Cosatu was no longer an effective voice of the workers.  “We hope Fawu will join Numsa and other unions in forming the new federation which is already in the process of being created and we will do what Cosatu was originally set up to do,” he stated.
