PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE

The COSATU-Affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) welcomes the announcement by the South African Rugby Union (SARU) CEO Jurie Roux that a significant proportion of the new Springbok supporters jersey will be locally manufactured. We will await a meeting to discuss further details with SARU.

It is this kind of commitment that is required from all sporting codes to help sustain local jobs in the domestic clothing and textile industry.

We are ready to partner with SARU and the Proudly South Africa campaign to make this a wonderful and constructive new area in our relationship.
