What Does SAPWU Stand For?

Discrimination in the workplace has been on the rise in the last 15 years. And therefor, SAPWU decided to take a stand for our people.

On the 8th August 2008 in Kwaggasrand (Pretoria) a decision was taken that we start a formal registration process of the South African Postal Workers Union (SAPWU) with the Department of Labour.

An example of discrimination in the workplace includes when an employer, supervisor, or co-worker treats another employee unfairly based on religion, age, ethnicity, gender, disability, skin colour, or race.

SAPWU decided to take a stand and fight for the rights of the workers of the South African Postal Workers and incorporate a long-term plan to stop discrimination in the workplace. Our aim is to:

  • To oppose any discrimination in employment and fight for the rights of all workers in any facet of work.
  • To use every legitimate means possible to convince all persons who are eligible for membership to become members.
  • To act, oppose and negotiate in the matters concerning Unfair Labour Practice.

These aims of SAPWU are to just to name a few.  Not a member of SAPAWU yet? The application process is easy for all employees in the postal service. The forms for application is downloadable on our website.

SAPWU – Fighting for your rights.
