NTEU Banner

One of two recognised unions at Nelson Mandela University – where we serve our members with compassion and kindness.

“Compassion is at the heart of every little thing we do.

It is the dearest quality we possess, yet all too often it can be cast aside with consequences too tragic to speak of.

To lose our compassion, we lose that what it is to be human.”  Anonymous


“One of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another is kindness.

If someone is in need, lend them a helping hand.

Do not wait for a thank you.

True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of

Something in return.”  Anonymous

Wellness in the Workplace

Workplace wellness is crucial in any work space.  Organizational policy must be designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes.

The POPI Act is important because it protects data subjects from harm, like theft and discrimination. The risks include reputational damage, fines and imprisonment, and paying out damages claims to data subjects. The biggest risk, after reputational damage, is a fine for failing to protect account numbers.
