Performing Arts Workers' Equity

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Performing Arts Workers' Equity (Acronym: PAWE) was founded in 19** to replace the South African Film and Theatre Union (SAFTU).

It was a small trade union that at its peak had a membership of only 365, but it was affiliated to the powerful Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

In 2007 PAWE amalgamated with MUSA (the Musicians Union of South Africa) to form CWUSA (the Creative Workers Union of South Africa). This process began in 2005 and culminated in a Launching Congress on 7-9 September 2007 in Johannesburg
