The Regional Executive Committee (REC), is responsible for the final decision regarding whether or not a person can become a SAPWU member.
Herewith the procedure for the application of the SA Postal Service for becoming a member of the SAPWU:
Workers are required to apply for Union Memberships at the Branch Executive Committee that hold jurisdiction over the area where they are employed.
The Branch Executive Committee have the authority to reject any application if it is in their professional opinion that the worker is not fit to be a member of the SAPWU.
If there is no functioning Branch Executive Committee the application must then directly be sent to the Regional Secretary / General Secretary for review, where the proper procedure of application will be followed.
