JOHANNESBURG - Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) General Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi says his federation cannot continue in its current paralysed state any more, but that Thursday night's discussions about the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa(Numsa)'s future couldn't find a resolution.
Cosatu's Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting was postponed until next month, after it appeared it was about to vote on whether to expel Numsa.
The CEC also received a report on Cosatu's unity from an African National Congress (ANC) intervention team, which advised that the metalworkers union reverse its decision to recruit workers from other sectors.
Vavi says affiliates agreed to the postponement, to reflect on the reports tabled in the meeting.
"We couldn't conclude the discussion because it was quite an involved, very difficult discussion and we came to the conclusion that we need to step back, consider matters and come back again, in a discussion."
