Teaser:

Natrass and Seekings (N&S) have penned a highly critical piece on the Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (Sactwu) published in the Review of African Political

Economy, attacking virtually everything it is and does, including its trade policies, its affiliation to the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), its investment company and in

particular its intervention into Seardel. This response contests many of the assumptions they make about the union and its approach to the world but perhaps more importantly seeks to

shed some light on the collapse of the largest clothing and textile corporation in the country (Seardel) and the union’s attempts to rescue it from liquidation.
