Membership and Benefits

The Union is open to all junior employees in the textile, garment and tailoring industries and any other worker or employee throughout the country who wishes to join the union and is acceptable by the union.

No person shall be deprived of membership of the union on grounds of sex, religious persuasion, political belief or ethnic origin.

A member has the right to transfer his membership from one Branch to another, as a result of transfer by the employer.

A member shall pay his or her contributions to the funds of the union regularly; he/she shall endeavour to participate fully in the affairs of the union, and shall refrain from any action which may bring the union into disrepute.

A member shall have the right to resign his or her membership. However, non-members of the union in an industry where the union exists shall pay agency fees equivalent to the union dues, if they are to enjoy the services being rendered by the union.

The NUTGTWN is unique for its dedication to the cause of its members. Today, members of the union are proud of the union’s heritage and the role it has played and is still playing in enhancing the welfare of its members.
