The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) has objected to the choice of a name for the new labour federation, the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) on the grounds that SAFTU closely resembles FEDUSA’s name. FEDUSA has subsequently instructed its attorneys, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyer Inc., to communicate a letter of demand to SAFTU’s leader Zwelinzima Vavi, to change their name, which has been added to the Register of Federations of Trade Unions by the Minister of Labour Relations, with effect from 23 March 2017, failing which FEDUSA will approach the Labour Court for relief.
