The Building Industry Bargaining Council (Cape of Good Hope) has confirmed that the annual builders' holidays for this year will start at close of business on the 12th of December 2014 (first leave day being the 15th of December 2014). The Industry will reopen on the 12th of January 2015 (the last leave day being the 9 January 2015). Employers and Employees can agree to a shorter leave period, provided that the employee is granted at least ten (10) working days leave within the annual builders' holiday period and that the employee is paid the basic wage for time worked as per Clause 8 (6) (b) of the Collective Agreement and that the Employer informs the BIBC of such days worked.
