I would like to thank you for inviting us to come from Namibia to support our comrades in the National Bargaining conference (NBC). Since I am from a small union which is still growing,
I have learnt the way the workers and leaders stand together to demand their share from employers.
South Africa’s workers have hope and strength and I hope they will achieve what they are demanding. In Namibia we don’t have a NBC, but from this experience, I will do my level best to introduce it within our motor and tyre industries in Namibia and we will be asking for Numsa’s help.
Thank you. I have learnt a lot more on day two, three and four of the NBC.
