This was despite the Johannesburg Labour Court’s Saturday ruling that Numsa’s suspension of thirty officials ahead of the Congress wasn’t in line with the union’s own constitution and was invalid, and interdicting the gathering from going ahead until Numsa was compliant.

National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) confirmed that its 11th National Congress will be going ahead as planned.

This was despite the Johannesburg Labour Court’s Saturday ruling that Numsa’s suspension of 30 officials ahead of the Congress wasn’t in line with the union’s own constitution and was invalid.

The court further interdicted the gathering until Numsa was compliant.

The union convened a Special Central Committee meeting on Tuesday and said in a statement that it had since taken a decision to appeal the court’s ruling.
