NOTU Chairman to remain in office until further notice


KAMPALA– The Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development has disclosed that Usher Owere Wilson will remain the Chairman-General of the National Organisation of Trade Unions, until the registrar general of trade unions pronounces himself on the outcome of the November 15th election that ousted him out of office.

In a meeting held last evening, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Gender David Kibenge said that the Ministry cannot recognize any group until the Registrar General makes a decision on the same.

The meeting which was called to reconcile the two warring factions was however boycotted by the group led by Stephen Mugole who was last week voted as the acting Chairman-General.

A total of 24 out of 34 workers’ unions under NOTU last week passed a vote of no confidence in Usher Wilson Owere as the body’s chairman-general over alleged incompetence and dictatorship.
