The Transforming Corporate Governance Programme provides the labour movement with strategic company research on South African multinational corporations operating in sub-Saharan Africa. The research relates directly to the conditions of employment of workers. We maintain the South African Multinational Corporations Database, which is a repository of financial, operational and governance information of 91 South African MNCs operating in sub-Saharan Africa. Using our research and information, UNI Global union affiliates in the Shop Steward Alliance networks are able to engage large multinational retail companies in a more coordinated way and push for better conditions of work in the African countries in which they operate.
