The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] is celebrating 30 years as a giant public sector union since it was founded in 1987. The celebrations started on the 28th June 2017, during our 11th National Congress. We pay tribute to all gallant founders, all generations of leaders and members who contributed in building this giant organisation.
In celebrating this important milestone the union will be convening anniversary celebrations in all the nine Provinces. The celebrations will take the form of a lecture on the history of the union, especially the role played by the union in both international and domestic workers struggles, the growth of the union throughout the years and victories won fighting side by side with workers for a living wage and better working conditions.
These lectures will be addressed by former and current National Office Bearers [NOB’s]. Fraternal organisations and alliance partners will deliver messages of support in these events.
