The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) congratulates the new leadership of SAFTU, which was elected at Birchwood in Ekurhuleni last night. We are pleased to announce that NUMSA 2nd Deputy President comrade Ruth Ntlokotse was also elected as the President of SAFTU. This is definitely a positive development and we see this as an encouraging sign that more and more women will occupy positions of leadership in working class formations in the future.
