Remain positive, union tells members

Mere Naleba

GENERAL secretary of the National Union of Public Workers Alfred Manuel encouraged members present during its 16th annual general meeting to remain positive as the September General Election this year would mean that the NUPW could renegotiate working conditions and salary rates.

After being reinstated as the general secretary after his term expired last year, Mr Manuel said the membership of the NUPW decreased significantly after certain government reforms regarding unions.

"I would like to acknowledge the executive committee for their support, loyalty in carrying out their duty as the executive committee from one AGM to another," Mr Manuel said.

"It is through their decision that the union was able to pay out a large amount to those affected by the redundancy in various government department."
