The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has decided that President Jacob Zuma will no longer address its central committee meetings and all other federation events.
The union federation and member of the Tripartite Alliance made the decision following the chaos at the May Day rally on Worker's Day earlier this month were workers prevented the President from delivering his address.
According to EWN reporter, Clement Manyathela, Cosatu says it will communicate its decision to the alliance partner, African National Congress (ANC).
Manyathela says Cosatu has not made any comments about its President Sdumo Dlamini who attended Zuma's birthday celebration despite the Cosatu resolution that the President must step down.
Cosatu has already endorsed Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to become the next president.
The federation addressed the media on Tuesday following its special central executive committee meeting.
