OATUU President Bro. Atwoli Opens RENGO/OATUU Workshop on TICAD

This Morning the OATUU President Bro. Francis Atwoli who is also the Secretary General of COTU (K) officially opened a  high-level workshop  jointly organised by Japanese Trade Union Confederation {RENGO(JTUC)} and Organization of African Trade Union Unity (OATUU) on TICAD.

This is a Pre-Conference event organised to bring together the top leadership of Trade Union movement in Africa and those from Japan to brainstorm with a view of mainstreaming their agenda into the main TICAD conference which is being held for the first time in Africa in Nairobi Kenya.

In his remarks the OATUU President noted that he is a product of the Japanese Labour movement, he stated that his shrewdness and time discipline were instilled in him during the various capacity building training he received in Japan.

Bro. Atwoli also decried of how the labour movement is slowly dying in Africa, having lost its potent militancy that made it a force to reckon with. He challenged the Trade Unionist present to be vigilant and to fight strongly to protect the interest of workers.
