NAPTOSA learnt with great sadness of the passing away of Dr Leepile Mosweu Taunyane. LM Taunyane is fondly remembered as the founding president of the National Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA) in 1991. He helped bring together teachers who came from different backgrounds and who had been separated by the apartheid ideology in education. He was an educator and leader of great vision and integrity whose legacy in education, community work and in the soccer world will long be remembered and respected.

Dr Leepile Mosweu Taunyane

 

(14/12/1928 to 30/10/2013)

 

NAPTOSA learnt with great sadness of the passing away of Dr Leepile  Mosweu Taunyane.

 

LM Taunyane is fondly remembered as the founding president of the National Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA) in 1991.  He helped bring together teachers who came from different backgrounds and who had been separated by the apartheid ideology in education.  He was an educator and leader of great vision and integrity whose legacy in education, community work and in the soccer world will long be remembered and respected. 

 

He established an organisation for teachers which, more than 2 decades later continues to strive to provide quality education especially for the children of the disadvantaged masses of our country.  

 

NAPTOSA leadership and members pass our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and colleagues at the passing of this great South African.

 

 

 

CTU-ATU IN THE NORTH WEST PROVINCE

 

The Combined Trade Unions of Autonomous Teachers Unions (CTU-ATU) met at the PEU offices on Thursday, 31 October 2013 to discuss a host of issues including the rotation of the secretariat (corresponding party).

 

NAPTOSA North West has been the Secretariat during the period of the CTU-ITU and continued to serve as secretariat after the formation of CTU-ATU that was founded on 23 August 2011.

 

To function effectively as the CTU-ATU, and for purposes of communication with regard to matters related to the ELRC, corresponding parties at the national and provincial levels must be appointed.

 

The corresponding parties rotate every two years provided the national corresponding party shall represent 15% of the CTU-ATU national membership and the provincial corresponding party shall represent at least 10% of the provincial membership of the CTU-ATU.  Membership is determined in terms of the official audited vote weights as determined by the ELRC on 31 December of the preceding year.

 

The meeting unanimously agreed to hand over the secretariat to the SAOU as corresponding party for the next two years.

 

Mr Tim Tshoane, representative of NAPTOSA in the PELRC, remains the Chief Negotiator and spokesperson of the CTU-ATU in the Provincial Education Labour Relations Council (PELRC).
