Amendments to Labour Relations Act to deal with abuses

The department is prioritising the promulgation and implementation of the bills, currently before Parliament. The proposed amendments to the Labour Relations Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act, the Employment Equity Act, and the Employment Services Act would enable the department to deal with abuses in the labour market and non-compliance with labour legislation.

The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration said it has issued AMCU with non-resolution certificates for the platinum sector. However, the Chamber of Mines said gold producers would go to court as they believed the strike in their sector was illegal, and would seek damages from the union.
