Manyathela says the trade union federation will use the meeting to review the resolutions which were agreed upon at the 12th National Congress in 2015.

Cosatu will also review the progress made on several policies and campaigns including the minimum wage, National Health Insurance (NHI) and the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).

They are also going to review some of the campaign that they resolved they would come up with.
