The United National Transport Union (UNTU) hosted yet another ground-breaking venture by hosting its first ever UNTU Leadership Forum today, 3 March 2021.
The UNTU Executive Council joined forces with the UNTU Full Time Trade Union Representatives (FTUR’s), UNTU Secretariat and UNTU Organisers to brainstorm what needs to be done to adjust to the “new normal”.
A moment of silence was absorbed in remembrance of the more than 50 000 South Africans who succumbed to the deadly Covid-19 virus.
UNTU has always been of the view that one life lost is one to many, nonetheless the pandemic tied the hands of the most progressive transport Union.
The key focus areas of the meeting were on improving the Union’s service delivery and visibility in these exceedingly trying times, whilst the rest of South Africa is preparing itself for the Covid-19 pandemic’s predicted “third wave” as the vaccination process is underway nationwide.
Going forward, UNTU will focus on the empowerment of its newly elected Trade Union Representatives (TUR’S) to better equip them to deal with challenges in the workplace and to recruit new members to the Union whilst earning Mahala Money – our R100 canvassing fee for every recruit.
All UNTU members are invited to send their suggestions on how the Union can improve on delivering better and faster service than ever before to email@example.com.
Members are also encouraged to submit their celebrations to the Union’s social media pages by sending a photo and a WhatsApp message to Sonja Carstens, UNTU Media, Liaison and Communication Officer, on 082 463 6806.
