The SACTWU National Executive Committee (NEC) is the union’s second highest policy making decision structure, after our National Congress. Between meetings of our Congress, management of the affairs of the union is vested in our NEC. The union constitution prescribes that NEC meetings must be held thrice a year, composed of the President, Deputy Presidents, National Treasurer and a minimum of one delegate for each region, plus each region of the union is further entitled to 1 delegate for every completed three thousand paid-up members. SACTWU has 4 regions or provinces.

Our March 2011 meeting is the first NEC meeting for 2011. The NEC normally considers progress reports on the union’s Congress Program of Action, decide on new areas of policy if need be, receives and discuss reports from COSATU meetings, take stock of political developments. The NEC normally receive and evaluate reports on wide range of union activities, including: the minutes and matters arising from the previous meeting, union monthly† financial reports, updates of performance against budget, membership, staff conditions of employment (once a year), the union’s Save Jobs Campaign, collective bargaining, member service delivery, union investments, constitutional matters, international affairs, developments in our member benefit funds (funeral, retirement, bursary, etc), HIV/AIDS, a legal report, union education, skills development (SETA work), the union’s ICT program, assessment of structural meetings at all levels in the organisation since the previous NEC, and matters pertaining to the implementation of the union’s National Congress Program of Action.

From time to time, the NEC is addressed by special invited guests from the labour or political movement, or from government, on matters of interest to SACTWU. While it is not a constitutional requirement, the union encourages that the majority of NEC delegates must be women. Our current NEC is comprised of 56% women delegates.
