Die Spoorbund was an Afrikaner railway trade-union formed in 1934 by H. J. Klopper [af], founder of the Afrikaner Broederbond, which advocated a policy of replacing all black railway-workers with Afrikaners. It rejected strikes and called instead for loyal service to the South African Railways and Harbours Administration. The union had a membership of some 16,000 in the 1930s, considerably more that of its rival, the National Union of Railway and Harbour Servants.[1]
