The Sam Tambani Research Institute (SATRI) is an initiative of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Mineworkers Investment Trust (MIT). It was registered in 2012 as a non-profit institute, but it only commenced its work in earnest in 2014. SATRI was conceptualized through the recognition that information can be manipulated to perpetuate exploitation of workers. The same information, however, can also be used as a tool to negotiate for better conditions, as well as supporting pro-worker policies. SATRI was mandated to undertake research relevant to the welfare of workers and their communities in the Mining, Energy and Construction sectors. In addition, the Institute is tasked with undertaking proactive research on national policies and emerging issues that have a bearing on the well-being of workers, both in the short term and long term.
