Union members: The new Employees Union committee is (from left, front) Patricia Phillips, Andrea Plos, Catherine Wynsculley, Yasmin Fazel-Ellahi, and Kwezi Bonani. (Back) Frans Mamabolo, David Horwitz and Eugene Williams. (Absent: Alfred Nqotole, Gianpiero Benincasa and Mongezi Mbebe.)
A new face and new fees were the outcomes of the Employees Union's (EU) annual general meeting, held on 14 April.
During the AGM, the EU elected a new committee, announced new membership rates and provided contact information for consultants who will deal with members' medical aid-related queries.
Patricia Phillips is new to the committee, joining the team of nine. Andrea Plos has retained the position of president, and Frans Mamabolo retained the post of vice-president. One vacancy remains on the committee, and the EU has asked its members to let them know of anyone who would like to take up the position.
Membership subscriptions have increased by R2, from R30 to R32 per month - comparing favourably with the R45 charged by other campus unions. The EU also called on its members to recruit staff on their behalf.
NMG Consultants are now available to assist UCT staff with medical aid queries, such as problematic claims and issues; funding plan information; and explanation of current plan options and the benefits available to members and their dependants.
