In the face of serious threats to the collective power of workers, it is vital that trade unions remain strong, large and representative.

SACTWU membership is open to workers in a number of sectors including in the following:

clothing
textiles
wool, hides and skins
leather and footwear
tanning, woolpulling and fellmongering
canvas and ropeworking
laundry, dyeing and dry-cleaning
manufacturing, distribution and farming.

The Membership Campaign

Without significant and constant recruitment, membership numbers can decline. With the jobs that have been lost in our industry, the union's membership would have declined dramatically were it not for SACTWU's extensive recruitment campaign. Instead, we have more than 85 000 members.

SACTWU's recruitment campaign has the following four main elements:

Month-long recruitment blitzes in February, July and October each year
Organiser recruitment
Non-metro recruitment
Strategic factories and sectors
