The National Education Health Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) will be engaged on a four days national congress starting from the 26 – 29 June 2017 at Birchwood Hotel Conference Centre, Boksburg. This is their 11th National Congress. The congress is hosted under the theme “Strengthen workplace organisation, deepen class consciousness and advance internationalism”.
The national congress is the highest decision-making body of the union and has powers to adopt new policies, resolutions and also elect new National Office Bearers [NOBs]. The congress is attended by delegates drawn from all structures of the national union and delegates will receive progress reports on the implementation of the 10th national congress resolutions held in June 2013. At the end, the congress will be expected to map a way forward for the next four (4) years.
The Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) wishes NEHAWU and its members all the best as they begin with their National Congress. We hope that the outcomes of the congress will be beneficial to the labour environment and the upcoming negotiations.
