Johannesburg - The Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) is going back to basics to reclaim Rustenburg, the union federation's general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi said on Saturday.

"It cannot be business as usual, we need to go back to basics as our 11th national congress has demanded," he told reporters after a special central executive committee meeting.

He said the federation would hold a rally in Rustenburg in the North West province next week Saturday.

"We call on all workers in the North West, and also Limpopo and Gauteng to attend a rally and reclaim the Rustenburg area from the forces of counter revolution."

Rustenburg has been engulfed with wildcat strikes in the mining sector, which had now spilled over to a factory in Brits.
