Federal Consultative Council of South African Railways and Harbours Staff Associations
The Federal Consultative Council of South African Railways and Harbours Staff Associations (FCC) was a national trade union federation bringing together unions representing white railway workers in South Africa.
The council was established in 1928 by the Artisan Staff Association and the South African Railways and Harbours Salaried Staff Association. In 1957, it affiliated to the South African Confederation of Labour (SACOL), a loose grouping. However, SACOL became gradually more centralised. In 1975, the FCC decided to disaffiliate, but all but one of its affiliates immediately signed up to SACOL.
As of 1962, the following unions were affiliated to the FCC:
|Artisan Staff Association||ASA||1924||16,611|
|Locomotive Engineers' Mutual Aid Society||LEMAS||1905||9,896|
|Running and Operating Staff Union||ROSU||1936||11,680|
|Salaried Staff Association||SALSTAFF||1918||20,000|
|South African Railways and Harbours Employees' Union||SAR&HEU||1924||7,875|
|South African Railways Police Staff Association||1,946|
