International Association of Machinists (IAM) shop stewards at a Crown Cork and Seal plant in Winchester, Virginia meet with National Union of Mineworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Regional Secretary Bethuel Maserumule (fourth from left) and Michael Fleshman, Labor Desk Coordinator of The Africa Fund; Barbara Shailor, International Affairs Director of IAM (second from left). The Africa Fund bought Maserumule to the United States after Crown Cork and Seal's South African subsidiary fired 196 workers, members of NUMSA, at its plant Alrode after its workers participated in a two-day stay away protest against apartheid violence.
