DENOSA Full Time Shop Stewards and Provincial Organisers met for two days at the DENOSA head office in Pretoria in March to tackle key pertinent issues of member servicing, recruitment and retention.
Robust discussions were held around challenges that full time shop stewards and provincial organisers, which stand in the way of a seamless service to members at any given time. Strategies were also formulated on how these challenges could be overcome.
The meeting was a way forward following the operations workshop that was held in January, which set the new target for each province in terms of member recruitment. While the organisation is able to recruit new members robustly, the shop stewards and provincial organisers realised that, based on the membership figures, the organisation was equally losing members, which often undid all the outstanding recruitment endevours done by the organisation.
