NAPWU General Secretary Petrus T Nevonga calling on all Namibian workers to unite under the auspices of NUNW:

NAPWU as one of the biggest trade union in the country is charged with the responsibility to defend the workers’ rights and interests. The Namibian workers and or the people of Namibia are negatively affected by the high living condition in the country. High inflation on food and transport remains one of the daily challenges in our beloved land. The effort made by our Government to step in and introduce zero rated tax on a seleced number of products is highly commended by NAPWU and Namibian workers in particular.

The Namibian Workers are faced with many challenges such as Unfair Labour Practices, discrimination of employees, harassment of our female employees at workplaces and low wages and therefore calling on all Namibian Workers to unite and resist against these challenges.
