Angola: Youth Advised to Join Trade Union Movements

Luanda — The deputy coordinator of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) -Africa Youth Committee, Lurdes de Carvalho, Friday called for the need of the Angolan young people to integrate in the trade union movements.

Lurdes de Carvalho said so to Angop, on the sidelines of the National Forum on "Employment in Angola", sponsored by National trade Union (UNTA-CS).

She said that this integration will enable the youth to know well their rights and duties at work place.

The official said that many among young people do not know the labour laws, adding that this is an issue that worries the trade union movement.

According to the source, many youths face job-related plights and in many cases they cannot discuss with their employers because they do not know their rights.

The evebnt was attended by representatives of the youths who join the trade unions in the provinces of Luanda, Cabinda, Benguela, Huambo, Moxico, Kwanza Norte and Namibe.
