South African Parastatal and Tertiary Institutions Union

North West University

Profile

We have strived to establish the profile of SAPTU both locally and on national level as a union that cares and a union that is involved with the interests and well-being of its people – a union that is value-driven with transparency as management principle with straightforward focused support for both employee and employer.


SAPTU North-West will endeavour to be part of a participatory process and dimension by using strategically formulated objectives including:

  • A pro-active executive committee;
  • A correctly positioned and active management committee;
  • An involved general management committee; and
  • An empowered and capacitated executive officer


Objectives and Purpose of Management Structure

  • The Executive Officer is effective due to being empowered as member of the Management Committee with full operational decision-making capacity;
  • The Management Committee liaises frequently and with focused agendas;
  • The Executive Committee proves to be a dynamic and positive group of people who are truly committed to serve the interests of SAPTU members, both individually and collectively;
  • Most members of the Executive Committee are involved in the negotiation and consultation structures of the University;
  • Urgent matters can be dealt with immediately by the Executive Committee, which meets once every month;
  • Due to the new appointment of the secretary, recruitment and communication is more effective.
  • Members are experiencing an involved and effective union, due to the increase in co-ordinated good service of SAPTU North-West.

All these ideals only became reality in an environment characterised by mutual respect and multi-level appropriation. SAPTU North-West used this vision as a powerful tool in becoming a leader in the sector – a leader that goes to every length to promote the interests of all its stakeholders through the principles of fairness and integrity.
