The Congress of South African Trade Unions in Limpopo congratulate and welcome the new NEHAWU Provincial Office Bearer elected at its 15th Provincial Congress held on the 29th ā€“ 30th April 2021 at The Ranch ā€“ Protea Hotel.

The federation attended and witnessed the robust 15th NEHAWU Provincial Congress which we are confident will usher in a new rejuvenated, militant, and vibrant public sector union in the province. COSATU applaud the delegates, the outgone Provincial Office Bearers, and the deployed National Office Bearers for a sterling job in delivering a successful provincial congress.

Indeed the union has embarked and implemented a very important principle of trade unionism, that of workers control and democracy. We are therefore calling on the newly elected Provincial Office Bearers to work on building unity of NEHAWU and contribute towards strengthening COSATU in the province.

The newly elected Provincial Office Bearers are as follows:

  1. Provincial Office Bearers                   : Cde Erick Chauke
  2. Deputy Provincial Secretary              : Cde Linda Nthulane
  3. Provincial Treasurer                           : Cde Chris Phatlane
  4. Provincial Secretary                           : Cde Moss Maubane
  5. Deputy Provincial Secretary              : Cde Jacob Adams

Amongst the immediate task facing the union in the sector is:

  • To confront arrogant employers,
  • Use the existing collective bargaining instruments to improve the working conditions of our members,
  • Fight against gender-based violence and sexual harassment in the workplace and communities,
  • Fight for compliance to Occupational Health and Safety and
  • Fight corruption in government and state-owned enterprises
  • Adopt an effective recruitment campaign to increase our membership
  • Build strong workplace organizations
  • Campaigns to defend our collective bargaining

The federation is looking forward to working very closely with the newly elected Provincial Office Bearers in building strong workplace organizations.
