cosatuEWN reports that according to labour federation Cosatu all its union affiliates are standing firmly behind the planned national strike on Wednesday against state capture.  

It insists there are no divisions on the matter despite its former affiliate the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) having called the stay-away "a desperate move".  The federation’s general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said they were ready for Wednesday’s strike, which would be ‘protected’.
