The National Union of Metalworkers of SA will not support the ANC in next year's elections, general secretary Irvin Jim said on Friday.

The union would also stop paying contributions to the Congress of SA Trade Unions and SA Communist Party, he told delegates at the union's special national congress in Boksburg, on the East Rand.
"Numsa as an organisation will neither endorse nor support the ANC or any other political party in 2014."
Union members had the constitutional right to vote, but union members and officials would campaign in their own time and with their own resources.
"Any individual member is entitled in their own time to be active in any political party, including getting elected to leadership positions.
"However, no Numsa office bearer is allowed to hold any office bearer position of any political party," he said.
