Suspended Cosatu boss Zwelinzima Vavi is likely to win a battle for control of the union federation if it convenes a special congress to re-elect its leaders.
That’s according to a survey, which found that Vavi was the only leader of the federation who represented workers’ aspirations.
A pro-Vavi union leader said it was clear that Vavi is popular among workers on the shop floor.
“The whole thing (Vavi’s removal) is about leaders, not workers. That is why they would try to block the conference.
“It is only correct that workers be involved if there has to be a change of leadership,” he said.
