PAWUSA's Rich History

PAWUSA, Public & Allied Workers Union of South Africa, formerly known as the Public Servants League, is one of the oldest unions in the Public Service.

PAWUSA's history dates back to 1967 when the PSL (Public Servants League) was established in Cape Town, on 23 November 1967 to represent employees in the public service.

In a period when workers had no labour rights or access to representation and collective bargaining and trade unions were racially separated.

Many well known people in the South Africa including Dr Richard Van De Ross and Dr Franklin Sonn were part of PAWUSA's founder members.

Since then PAWUSA have grown into a dynamic national union with representation in all provinces and all spheres of the public service in South Africa.

PAWUSA prides itself in being truly a union for the people, by the people!
