SA Chamber USA disowns the below post on social media as it is FAKE news.
The SA Chamber USA has NOT sent out a message to H2A workers warning that South Africa is being removed from the H2A eligibility list. SA Chamber USA would like to assure our members that we will support and fight to keep South Africa in the H2A program.

Regarding the supposed writers of this post, we found the following information. We have received no confirmation that they indeed wrote this post.
The agents/attorneys listed below are those that New York’s H-2A employers currently hire to
complete H-2A related paperwork, recruit workers from foreign countries and provide general
assistance in the H-2A process. The New York State Department of Labor’s Foreign Labor
Certification Unit (FLCU) is not allowed to endorse anyone representative over any others.
This list may be provided to employers who would like to utilize the services of these individuals.
SA Chamber of Commerce,
We hope that this message finds you well. We need to extend our sincerest apologies to your organization after our most recent email to our employers. We have come to understand that the message that we received multiple calls about yesterday evening did not come from your organization as we were informed. We make a strong effort not to be the source of misinformation. While the issue that we mentioned is real, we should have done more research before citing your organization. We ask for your forgiveness. We will be sending out another email to our employers and agents to ensure that we inform as many people as we can of our mistake in citing your organization as the source of the message. We hope that we have not caused you a great deal of trouble. We did not intend for our message to be posted on social media. Normally we stay away from those platforms. However, feel free to post this message on your social media. We genuinely did not mean for our email to lead to trouble. We have the best interest of our employers and the South African H-2A workers at heart.
Zach and Merritt Harris
