About Simunye Workers' Forum

SFW is currently an unregistered trade union.

Any worker can join, including unemployed workers.

The forum brings together mainly labour broker workers, but permanent workers are welcome to join.

The main aim of the SWF is to build workers’ unity against all and any bosses. Wherever you work, whether at a factory, shop or petrol station, you are welcome in the SWF and we will join you in your struggle!

Join the SWF and help build a new weapon for workers!


Workers have a choice.

They can go for a quick solution by building something that will become rotten like the other trade unions and sell out workers.

Or they can build something new, something that will be a weapon in the hands of workers, even if that will take time.
