OUR MEMBERS ARE FROM THESE SECTORS


About us

At the very beginning we recognized that we have to make over concerted efforts to avoid the mistakes we committed in the past as members of the trade union movement totally aligned to a political party; blinded by the historical mission.

We consciously agree that we need to design programmes and deploy strategic leadership in various areas of the organization and society to respond to legislative; operational and structural requirements of the organization and to align the organizational systems with the working class’ needs and aspirations.

1BACKGROUND ON HOW SALIPSWU WAS FORMED

The formation of a progressive; independent; militant; politically non-aligned

worker controlled public service union was conceptualised by the workers who decided to find a home for themselves and distance themselves from public sector unions who are in alliances with political parties in government..

Fight against all forms of discrimination in the workers organizations, workplaces; communities and in society.

Promote principles of democracy as a way of encouraging all unorganised workers to join the unions in all work places.

Ensure that all workers and structures of the Union act democratically and by all means promote worker control.

Promote and encourage democratic worker leadership and collective decision making in the workplaces and influence such principles in communities.

Subscribe at all times to principles that promote international working class struggles for economic emancipation of the working class.
