COSATU Free State congratulates the NUM for hosting a successful conference

Monyatso oa Mahlatsi, COSATU Free State Provincial Secretary, 26 November 2021

As COSATU Free State we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the NUM a founding Affiliate of the Federation, for hosting a successful Regional Conference on 24-25 November 2021 in Woodlands lodge at Parys.

The conference sat under the commanding theme ‘reclaiming our space through quality service’ and was seized with the task of developing resolutions and decisions which would put the NUM member in the centre of all the operations and activities of the union.

The conference was confronted with very stark challenges in the sector which seeks to threaten the jobs and livelihood of NUM members as well as the very existence of the union at worst. The declining economic situation, capital strike, attack on collective bargaining as led by Sibanye Stillwater.

The conference has also applied its mind on the national discourse around the just transition form fossil fuel to renewable energy. The conference deliberated and concluded that it will pursue all legal means to safeguard the jobs of our members and to ensure job creation through the ushering in of the just transition.

The conference deliberated and adopted a clear program to consolidate and advance the interests of NUM members with recruitment and retention of members being an apex priority.

As part of its constitutional obligation the Conference elected the following ROB Collective to lead the NUM Free State Region for the next three years:

Regional Chairperson: Cde. Fusi Ramohomane

Deputy Regional Chairperson: Cde. Shinyata Mabunda

Regional Secretary: Cde. Tshepo Molibeli

Deputy Regional Secretary: Cde. Sizwe Mokoena

Regional Treasurer: Cde. Vuyelwa Kama

Deputy Chair Education: Cde. Motsamai Masukela

Deputy Chairperson Health & Safety: Cde. Maruping Mahloko

Deputy Secretary Education: Cde. Thabo Tyson Chaela

Deputy Secretary Health & Safety: Cde. Abbey Hlakoana

We take this opportunity to welcome the new leadership to the Provincial Executive Committee of the Federation and wish them well as they carry out the mandate handed down to them by the Regional Conference.

The struggle continues

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women | Mobilising and organising for a world that is safe and affirming for all

25 November 2021

November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, kicks off the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence around the world. To mark this important day, David Edwards, Education International General Secretary, launched a call for collective and sustained action across our societies to make the world safe and affirming for all.

The statement stresses the work and commitment of education unions everywhere to eradicate gender-based violence around schools and other educational settings, and to support the International Labour Organization Convention 190 for a world of work free from violence and harassment.
