Founding Statement

As an organization we are founded with a mission to fight for jobs for the unemployed metalworkers, fight for decent jobs for the employed metalworkers, fight for better living conditions, fight for safe and secure workplaces and fight for an economic order that serves all the people.

Mission

Strive for full employment of all the people. Strive for the economic order that serves all the people. Decent and safe working environment. Fight for both employed and unemployed workers

A Vision For The Future

To have a unitred, organized and fighting union. To have a country that promotes manufacturing as the basis for a developmental state. Increase equality in society and in the workplaces. To translate political freedom to economic freedom.

Core Values

Democracy and worker control. Unity of workers at all levels. Betterment of wages and conditions of employment. Accountability and transparency to members.

In 2013 we highlighted the manipulation of democratic process before the NUMSA Special National Congress. Comrade Cedric Gina’s resignation as President exposed the fact that NUMSA was no longer worker-controlled. After December 2013 Special Congress it was clear to us that our union had been driven to take a wrong turn.
