From November 24, 2021, the Management of Rwanda Extractive Industry Workers Union (REWU) continues to visit its members in various cooperatives in the Northern Province of Rwanda.
Through regular visits, REWU better explains its responsibility and membership responsibilities that, once done well, facilitate and improve the interaction between both the workers and the Management of the Company in which they work for.
Such visits are also utilised to explain to the members about the Labor Law in order to expand their knowledge on employee’ rights and their responsibilities and those of the employer.
In this regard, on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, the Management of REWU represented by the Deputy Secretary General who is also its Lawyer Mr. Bwanakweli Jean Marie along with the REWU Coordinator in the Northern and Eastern Provinces Musabyimana Deogratias visited EPROCOMI and COMIKAGI Cooperatives working in Ruli in Gakenke District where the law on labor was re-explained; the rights of the worker and what would make his family prosper
The visit continues on November 25, 2021 at Gifurwe Mine in Burera District where they were briefed on serious misconducts that could lead to the dismissal of an employee without notice as per the Ministerial Order No. 002 / 19.20 of 17/03/2020 establishing gross misconduct that can lead to the immediate Contract cancelation without notice.
Mr Jean Marie, a REWU lawyer, urged staff to abide by the law and recognize their rights and thus avoid work-related conflicts between the employee and the employer.
He argues that good collaboration between the Employee and the Employer contributes to increased productivity.
