Crowning a global development cooperation initiative, the 4th Congress of the Organizaçao Nacional dos Professores modified the organisation’s constitution to become a trade union able to engage in social dialogue and improve teachers’ working and living conditions.
The main objective of the 4th Congress of the Organizaçao Nacional dos Professores (ONP) was to change ONP’s constitution so that it could become a union.
Held on 21-22 August in Mantola, the ONP congress debated the theme of “Unionisation of ONP: guaranteeing social dialogue to improve the condition of the teaching profession” and adopted a strategic plan for the coming years. Delegates elected the new members of the union’s National Council, the National Secretariat and the Fiscal and Jurisdictional Council.
This aim was fully achieved when delegates adopted the constitution of the National Union of Teachers of Mozambique (ONP/SNPM).
