SACTWU pays respect to Cde Emma Mashinini

10 July 2017

The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers' Union (SACTWU) is saddened by the news of the passing of veteran trade unionist Emma Mashinini.

Cde "Mama"Emma Mashinini has played a major role in the unionisation of South African clothing workers. For example, she served for 12 years on the executive committee of the National Union of Clothing Workers (NUCW). The NUCW is one of SACTWU's founding unions, having been incorporated previously into the Amalgamated Clothing & Textile Workers Union of South Africa (ACTWUSA).

SACTWU dips its banner in honour and remembrance for her contribution to the fight for decent working conditions in the clothing industry, and for her role of building the trade union movement generally.

Andre Kriel
General Secretary,
SACTWU
