Solidarity’s roots lie in the mining industry. Solidarity’s Mining Sector is organised in the gold, platinum, copper, chrome, coal, iron ore, base metals and diamond industries. Solidarity is also represented at all the large cement manufacturers in the country. Solidarity Agriculture is represented at all the large agricultural cooperatives, nowadays known as agribusinesses.

Shop stewards receive training in various aspects of labour relations and labour law, enabling them to offer their colleagues advice on labour-related issues.
