SAT (website)is "an Andalusian union of workers, established in September 2007 (Europa Press, 23 September 2007) in Universidad Pablo de Olavide (Seville) by Diego Cañamero (b. 1956). SAT is "a working class, unitarian, autonomous, independent, sovereign and supporting with all workers, which maintains relations with other unions in Spain and in the world."
SAT was established as the merger of the Sindicato de Obreros del Campo (SOC), then chaired by Cañamero, of Autonomía Obrera (Cádiz), of Foro Sindical Andaluz, and a few other workers' organizations.
Diego Cañamero, elected representative for Unidos Podemos at the Congress in 2016, was succeeded by Óscar Reina, who explicitly called for the independence of Andalusia on 27 August 2016 (Público, 17 August 2016).
