Workers’ Day, celebrated on 1 May, is most commonly a commemoration of labour movement achievements. At UASA every day is Workers’ Day and it is our duty as a labour union to put our members first and to assist them in dealing with workplace-related challenges daily.
Many workers lost their jobs and sources of income in the past year, while workers’ rights and the notion of decent work also took a turn for change as workers’ strived to protect themselves in the world of work.
“The resilience of workers during this unpleasant time has shown their worth towards our country’s growth. UASA takes note of all the hard work put in by our members and workers in general for the greater benefit of our economy. I urge all South Africans to join hands and work together to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic and restore our sectors.” says UASA CEO Jacques Hugo.
“We pay tribute to all our members on Workers’ day and we look forward to a bright future where decent employment is a liberty for all,” he concluded.
