SACTWU call on MP's to 'Wear Proudly South African' on opening of Parliament


The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (SACTWU) calls on all MP’s  and their guests to support jobs in the local clothing and textile industry, by wearing locally manufactured clothing on the opening of parliament. We know that the fashion at the opening of parliament is almost as important as the State of the Nation address of the President.

We call on our Ministers, MP’s, their wives, girlfriends and partners wearing locally produced clothing on this nationally important occasion. The clothing worn on the opening of the South African parliament should reflect the design and craftsmanship of South African fashion industry workers and companies.  We call on all of them to disclose the label of origin of the clothing that they would be wearing for the event on Thursday this week.

Issued by Andre Kriel,
General Secretary,
Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (SACTWU)
