Are no longer powerless
Can meet the employers as equals
Can recover their dignity in exchange of their lives for a honest living
No longer feeling very weak, utterly dependent on their employer’s good will
Acting alone you cannot achieve anything
In terms of protecting yourself from the harmful acts of the employer
In securing better working conditions
In seeking the passage of laws protecting teachers and as an individual
You will find yourself utterly powerless an at the employers’ mercy

negotiate with the employers
3.1 I do understand that Membership Fee is monthly N$ 100-00 until such time the National Congress (NC) or National Teachers’ Council (NTC) in consultation with Regional Structures to its members will be amending it, considering economic factors.
3.2 I agree to inform NANTU officially and personally of my cancellation of Membership by providing a letter and my latest payslip attached. I further understand that salaries are prepared in advance by the Ministry of Finance and that it takes about 2 – 3 months for the Ministry of Finance to totally stop any deductions.
3.3 I will not hold NANTU responsible to repay any deductions made from my salary after the cancellation date and will wait for 2 – 3 months’ period.
3.4 Lastly, I will inform NANTU if I have joined another Ministry to stop my deductions if I do not want to continue being a member of NANTU. If I fail to do so, I will not make any claim against the deductions.
