Johannesburg - The unchanged Cosatu leadership was a good sign that there was unity within the trade union federation, the ANC said on Monday.

"It augurs well for continuity and uninterrupted servicing of all unions," ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

"It has indeed put all the prophets of doom to the dustbin of history where they actually belong."

This would also have a positive affect on discussions regarding policy issues, he said.

Earlier on Monday, the Congress of SA Trade Unions' (Cosatu) current leadership was nominated unopposed for another term.

"Their re-election is a confirmation of their leadership and ability to steer Cosatu in the right direction," said Mthembu.

The African National Congress saluted Cosatu for the good start to its four-day conference on Monday.

An ANC delegation attended the first day of the conference.

President Jacob Zuma, who is also party president, addressed Cosatu delegates earlier in the day.

He was accompanied by deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe, secretary general Gwede Mantashe, deputy secretary general Thandi Modise and ANC chairperson Baleka Mbete.
