Playing a part in making the world a better place

[September 7, 2015] I am because we are – Ubuntu. This single word represents an ancient African philosophy that embodies the very spirit of what it means to be human. Simply put, Ubuntu is about being kind, fair and generous to those around you. It’s about having a collective respect for human dignity.
Ubuntu speaks to the fact that we are all interconnected and that we do not, and cannot, exist in isolation. Too often we think of ourselves as just individuals. We forget that everything we do affects those around us. Ubuntu is the understanding that each of us belongs to something greater and that we all have a responsibility and part to play in making the world a better place. It’s about finding a way to be prosperous together.
This simple philosophy encompasses what the labour movement is all about. This value of working together to raise each other up is embedded in the core of trade unionism.
