On November 12, 2021, in partnership with Rwandafoam, the Rwanda Extractive Industry Workers Union (REWU) distributed mattresses to its members in the ETI Shyorongi mine in Rulindo district.
The mattresses worth two million Rwandan francs will be paid in three months.
It is an initiative aimed at improving the livelihoods of mining and quarrying workers.
Speaking on behalf of REWU, Mr Musabyimana Deogratias, the REWU coordinator in the Northern Province called on the workers to continue the spirit of unity as well as to be more productive at work.
He added that REWU will also further strengthen advocacy and other activities that will improve the lives of the trade union members.
