Long-time Congress of SA Trade Unions national spokesperson Patrick Craven has resigned following the expulsion of general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.

Craven attended a media briefing held by Vavi on Wednesday in Johannesburg.

He said he handed in his resignation on Tuesday. Although Craven said he still believed in the principles of Cosatu, he could not defend its decisions. Vavi was expelled from Cosatu during a special central executive committee meeting held on Monday. Vavi boycotted the meeting.

At the briefing Vavi said he is adamant that his expulsion from the trade union federation was unfair and illegal.

“I am… in consultations on whether or not I should challenge my extremely irregular, illegal and completely unjustified expulsion as general secretary of Cosatu,” he said.

“I have no doubt that the dismissal is unfair and illegal. I have been dismissed without a hearing conducted by an independent chairperson.” NEWS24
