                                     Welcome to SACTWU

The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) is the largest trade union in the clothing, textile, leather  and footwear industry in South Africa and globally, with just more than 99 000 members as at the end of August 2015.

Sactwu was founded in September 1989, the result of a merger between South Africa’s key garment, textile and leather sector trade unions.

We negotiate wages and terms of conditions of employment for the vast majority of workers in the clothing, textile, leather and footwear industry
