Welcome to SATUCC

The Southern Africa Coordination Council (SATUCC) is a regional trade union organization representing all major trade union federations in the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

SATUCC was established in  March 1983 in Gaborone, Botswana soon after the formation of the Southern Africa Coordination Conference (SADCC) which later transformed into the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). The main idea was to:

  • form a strong regional trade union body that could play a role in the political liberation struggle and
  • influence policy at the regional level in favour of workers.

Today SATUCC and is the only formally recognised representative regional trade union confederation with a special status in the SADC.
