The Botswana Sector of Educators Trade Union (BOSETU) and the Botswana Open University (BOU) entered into a historic agreement on Wednesday that will see BOSETU as the university’s trade union partner in collective bargaining matters for its employees.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, the university’s acting vice-chancellor, Professor Kgomotso Moahi hailed BOSETU’s unquestionable determination and commitment in the area of education and welfare, adding that BOSETU’s broad definition of the education sector was progressive as they recognised all the diverse labour resources in the education sector and not just confined to the classroom matters.

Moahi pointed out that as a collegium, the university’s functions are anchored around partnerships and that the BOSETU partnership is viewed in the same light.
