PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE

The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (SACTWU) rejects SARU’s most recent public claim that the majority of Springbok rugby supporters gear was produced locally. The evidence on the retail store shelves so clearly proves otherwise.
We challenge SARU to subject their claim to an independent audit. This will once and for all empirically expose the truth.
SACTWU welcome SARU’s further statement that the rugby governing body is “firmly committed” to increase local procurement in future.
We will now seek a meeting with SARU in order to concretise the implementation practicalities of their public commitment to increase local manufacturing of rugby supporters gear.

We are of the view that this is the most constructive route to immediately pursue whilst we all simultaneously throw our weight behind the national team for a successful 2011 Rugby World Cup campaign.
