Press Release: Immediate


The COSATU-affiliated, SA Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU), has taken note of the events currently unfolding within Steinhoff.

We are deeply concerned about the implications of this matter on our members. SACTWU has thousands of members who work in companies ultimately owned by the Steinhoff Group. These include companies such as Pepclo, Dunns, Shoe City, Pep Stores and Ackermans (under Steinhoff) and Deslee Mattex and Feltex (under KAP Industrial Holdings in which Steinhoff International is a major shareholder).

We have today written to Jayendra Naidoo, the chairperson of Steinhoff African Retail (which employs many of our members) and also a board member of Steinhoff International, and Pieter Erasmus, part of the leadership at Steinhoff International who have replaced the previous CEO, to call for an urgent meeting in order for us to be briefed on the implications of these recent developments on our members.

SACTWU will do everything in its power to ensure that the interests and job security of our members are under no circumstances jeopardised in any manner whatsoever.

Andre Kriel
General Secretary
SACTWU
