RAAWU inherited from OTTU less than 5000 members in 1995. Despite the retrenchment exersice by the government between 1996 – 1997, we managed to raise our membership to as big as thousands members (12,000) of which 2/3 are men and 1/3 are women.
Entrance fee and monthly subscription:
No entry fee. The cost of joining our union is the decision of someone to join. Upon joining the union, the new member issued with a membership card. Members pay monthly subscriptions at a rate to be determined by the congress but currently 2% of his/her basic salary.
