WINDHOEK, 01 MAR (NAMPA) – The Namibian Domestic and Allied Workers Union (NDAWU) made a call to all domestic workers countrywide to join the union.
Newly-elected President of NDAWU, Salomon Hobexab made this remark on Sunday - the last day of the third national congress of the union that was held in the capital.
He said that NDAWU asks all domestic workers countrywide to join the union as it is the only genuine domestic workers’ union that takes the interest of its member seriously.
“We ask domestic workers within our country to join NDAWU as its the only genuine union representing domestic workers in Namibia,” he said.
Hobexab said that domestic workers who left NDAWU over the years should come back to the union because the wrong forces might have deceived them.
He said that NDAWU will embark on a nationwide organizing and recruitment drive, adding that branches and sections throughout the country will be organized as well.
The purpose of the congress was to evaluate, strategise and plan a way forward for NDAWU as a union and to elect leaders to steer NDAWU in the new era of a minimum wage.
Hobexab said that more details on the recruitment will be announced through the various media channels.
