Formed in 1983, the Southern African Trade Union Co-ordination Council (SATUCC) has become the main regional trade union organization in SADC. Its membership consists of all major trade union federations in the SADC region.
During the 1980s and into the early 1990s, the key focus was on supporting liberation struggles in the region confronted with oppressive colonial and apartheid regimes. However, following the political liberation in the entire SADC region SATUCC’s political focus has shifted towards promoting and defending democracy and good governance.
