QUALITY SERVICE DELIVERY

 

The Provincial Office of NAPTOSA would like to continue providing excellent service to members. We would like to hear your suggestions on how we can improve our service delivery to you. Please send us your views by email or fax.

 

We also wish to bring to the attention of members that the Provincial Office can only deal with cases that are brought to the office by the branch leaders, unless if the branch is not fully functional. It is important that members adhere to protocol in order to avoid disappointments. The office has experienced challenges where both the branch and the provincial office had deal with the same case simultaneously. This is uneconomic and a waste of union resources. This also creates unnecessary disharmony between branches and the provincial office.
