Protests took place in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, among other cities, with marchers carrying 'Zuma Must Fall' placards and singing anti-Zuma songs.
COSATU wants Zuma to appoint a judicial commission of inquiry to investigate state corruption.
In a statement released by COSATU, the union confederation said "corruption has become endemic under this administration".
"This calls for all of us as workers and citizens to stand up and push back against this rot."
Solly Mapaila, SACP deputy general secretary, on Tuesday called for all workers to join the strike. ■
