NATIONAL UNION OF PENSIONERS (NUP)

Origin of NUP

Nigeria Union of Pensioners is a product of the aftermath of the restructuring exercise carried out in 1977 by the Federal Military Government on all the nearly 1000 trade unions in Nigeria.  Although most of them are mushroom.
As a result of the above, there were serious efforts by the Pensioners to come together and form a united front as an official voice of all Pensioners to fight for their right, this led to the emergence of various Pensioners Associations.  These associations later metamorphosed into what is known today as the NIGERIA UNION OF PENSIONERS.
The Nigeria Union of Pensioners was registered as a full-fledged Trade Union in 1978 with its first registration number as initially approved by the Registrar of Trade Unions (RTU) as N0. 0067.  The Union has members in the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, and also at all Local Government areas.
Today, the Nigeria Union of Pensioners is the apex and umbrella body of all the Civilian Pensioners in the country.  It is the only Union approved by the Federal Government through the office of the Registrar of Trade Union (RTU), to cater for the welfare of Nigerian Civil Pensioners.
In every state capital, there is a State Council Office and the Local Government branches that can be contacted for membership details.  The State Councils have the mandate to organize Pensioners from all offices with pension benefits including Federal and State Institutions, Public Service, Parastatals, Private Sector and Local Governments.

The principal objectives of the Union as enshrined in our constitution are as follows:

  1. Organization of pensioners throughout the Federation of Nigeria.
  2. Regulation of relations between the Union and the Federal government, between the Union and the State governments, between the Union, the Local Governments, the Federal Parastatals, and Management of Private Establishment e.g Banks and between pensioners and pensioners.
  3. Advancement of the education and training of pensioners.
  4. Provision of benefits and other assistance for the members as provided in the constitution.
  5. Protection and advancement of the socio-economic and cultural interests of the community and
  6. Such other objects as are lawful and are not inconsistent with the spirit and practice of Trade Unionism.

The Union’s estimated membership strength is 1,000,000 nationwide.
Activities in the calendar year are:

  1. NAC, CWC, and NEC meetings
  2. Pensioners Day is marked every year nationwide on the 11th December.  The Union has grown tremendously and remarkably in every facet, and has recorded many achievements over the years in terms of creation and promotion of members welfare and wellbeing generally.

Pensioners enjoy better living today as a result of concerned efforts of the leadership of the Union.
