24 March 2017
The South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU) in the Eastern Cape is holding its 9th provincial conference at the Regent Hotel in East London. This conference will, among others, elect the province's new leadership.
SADTU in the Eastern Cape has since February 2015 been led by a provincial task team that was appointed by the National office after the disbandment of the provincial leadership structure following serious irregularities that took place in a provincial elective Conference in July 2014.
All six regions are represented in this four-day provincial conference that will last until Saturday, 25 March 2017.
The Eastern Cape is the first province to hold its conference. The other eight provinces will hold theirs between April and July. The provincial congresses are a build up to the Union National General Council (NGC) that will be held in October. The NGC is the second biggest decision making structure between congresses dealing with major policy issues.
