South African Congress of Trade Unions
The T-shirt was produced by the South African Congress of Trade Unions Solidarity Committee (SSC) was sold primarily with the Canadian labor movement and were made in a Canadian union shop. During the height of the sanctions campaign, SSC sold hundreds and hundreds of these T- shirts to anti-apartheid supporters in the Canadian labor movement. The costs of production of the T-shirts were often borne by supporting union organizations; a portion of the proceeds went to support the work of SSC and to the official representative of South African Congress of Trade Unions (SACTU) in Canada. The shirt label reads "ILGWU Canada CLC union label"; ILGWU is the former union, the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union in the U.S. and Canada. [Note on date: the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) was formed on December 1, 1985 so this T-shirt must have been produced after that date.]
