NAPTOSA, the second largest union in the education sector, was registered by the Registrar of Labour Relations as the Trade Union on 1 November 2006. Furthermore,

NAPTOSA enjoys all the rights of a trade union and operates within the National ELRC under the name of the Combined Trade Unions (CTU), called CTU – ATU. The Provincial Autonomous Teachers’ Unions (ATU) consist of NAPTOSA (the corresponding party), NATU, PEU, PSA and SAOU.
