JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of South Africa Trade Unions (Cosatu) is expected to reveal this morning what the African National Congress (ANC)'s special task team has achieved in its efforts to prevent the federation from splitting over a decision by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) to withdraw its support from the ruling party.
On Tuesday Cosatu held a special Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting, where the ANC's task team reported back on its intervention.
Cosatu's last CEC meeting saw dramatic scenes, as it appeared Numsa was about to be expelled before Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa intervened, as the leader of an ANC task team.
Now that team has reported back on its intervention.
While the details of that report will only officially be released this morning, it's understood Numsa still remains part of Cosatu for now.
But several unions have demanded action against Cosatu's biggest affiliate because of its strong criticism of the ANC.
