The Summit of the Heads of States in August 2014 signed the SADC Protocol on Employment & Labour which now awaits ratification by the member states followed by implementation.

In light of the resolutions around the Protocol made during the 9th SATUCC Delegates Congress held in August 2013 in Gaborone, Botswana, SATUCC then launched a regional campaign on the ratification and implementation of the SADC Employment and Labour Protocol in Harare, Zimbabwe on the 28th July 2014. This launching ceremony was attended by the top leaders drawn from SATUCC affiliates and other activists from the civil society organizations (CSOs) in the SADC region.

In March 2015, SATUCC convened a meeting of Trade Union researchers (from affiliates) in Gaborone, Botswana to produce an Implementation Strategy to guide the national campaigns on the Protocol by the affiliates.

SATUCC affiliates are now rolling out national campaigns towards the ratification and implementation of the Protocol. The following are the useful reference materials around the campaign on the Protocol:
