In the aftermath of land reform, the union base among farm workers has been considerably weakened. The main union, GAPWUZ, now operates on a smaller membership and resource base. There is a case for material and solidarity support for the union. More specifically, efforts should be directed at capacity building in the union and strengthening its advocacy. Its focus will be wider now, extending to workers on the new commercial farms, and to those in informal settlements.

Main players who should help to preserve and strengthen the skills and organisational base of unions are: GAPWUZ, the international labour movement, FCTZ, local and international NGOs, agribusiness companies and commodity associations.
