The Gala Night

After some years of it being suspended (obviously due to COVID-19 regulations), members gathered once again at 7pm on Friday, 26th to unwind, wine and dine. It featured many exciting moments, dancing and singing. There were a lot of merriments and refreshments to go round. Members retired to their rooms by 10pm to get prepared for the main event.

The Special Delegates’ Conference (SDC)

The Special Delegates’ Conference (SDC) is usually organised for a specific purpose, and this was one of such purposes; the review of our Constitution to suit the changes in the world of work as the case may be. There were grey areas which needed special guidance and we had the representative of the Registrar of Trade Unions to assist us in that regard. There were breaks inbetween to give members some time to stretch their legs and rest their minds a bit. At the end, the task was done and it was smiles all round as members retired to their various locations.
