The Minister of Labour, Industrial Relations, and Employment Creation, Utoni Nujoma, says there is much that can be done to strengthen the relationship between the government and the trade unions. 

Nujoma says he intends to invite trade union leaders to meet in the near future to brief each other and explore concrete ways to support trade union priorities.

He said that as social partners, they must continue to prioritise issues such as fair wages, decent working hours, working conditions, and access to training and education. 

Some of the matters that need redress are the economy, automation, the growing digital divide, and upholding the fundamental rights of workers.

Nujoma was speaking at the commemoration of Workers Day at Rundu.
