JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) says it will convene a special Central Executive Committee(CEC) meeting as soon as possible to discuss concerns raised in an interim report on its unity compiled by the African National Congress (ANC).
The ruling party has been tasked with intervening and resolving internal disputes that have threatened a split in the federation.
The trade union federation's 19 affiliates have been divided since the suspension of General Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, with a third calling for a special national congress to elect new leadership.
The ANC's intervention resulted in all the unions agreeing to end hostilities until the factional battles have been resolved.
But this has not happened and Vavi's deputy Bheki Ntshalintshali says these violations will be investigated.
"Everybody acknowledged the report. In terms of the violation, everybody confirmed the committees were set aside to deal with the violations moving forward."
