POPCRU congratulates NEHAWU on its successful 12th National Congress

The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) congratulates its sister union, the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) on is successful 12th National Congress which took place from the 3rd to 6th of November 2021 under the theme “Strengthen workplace organisation to defend collective bargaining, deepen class consciousness and advance internationalism”.

As a sister union, we are pleased about the maturity demonstrated by delegates and the leadership of the union, including the qualitative engagements on all aspects of trade union work on the international, political and socio-economic situation and the state of the organisation.

Any successful congress is about consolidating democracy and workers control, and we are proud that NEHAWU continues to be worker led and controlled, as this has been a long-held tradition that has seen unions wither whatever storms and tribulations.

As trade unions, we commonly have a huge task ahead of us to find answers to the ongoing onslaught that is directed against workers from within the different sectors we organise in.

The process of fighting back against the sinister attempts to undermine collective bargaining and the erosion of workers’ rights will need united workers and a united working class. It is for this reason that we are looking forward working together in advancing working class struggles.
