Death Benefit

We are pleased and proud to place it on record that as a caring and responsible trade union we have taken a conscious decision to generously offer a total amount of R10 000.00, death benefit to our member as final salute and appreciation of a revolutionary association. This is a once off benefit.

Such a benefit shall be paid out to the legitimate recipient upon death of our member on condition that the deceased member has completed a twelve (12) months unbroken membership circle with the union.

Given the high cost of leaving and the declining value of our currency the union has as a matter of principle committed on a continuous adjustment of this benefits moving forward.

Our local based offices (Provincial offices) shall be responsible to ensure that claims are speedily processed to Head Office to avoid any inconvenience to the family during their time of bereavement.

Though there is no joy in losing a member particular through death but we know that this is natural processes that will eventual strikes to all of us, hence this little financial cushion to the funeral cost.

We are a caring trade union!!!!!!!!
