Khomotso Makapane unpacks the New Agreement on Collective Bargaining and Strikes

14 June 2017 | Employment and Benefits

The coal mining sector has averted strike action after some of the country’s largest firms agreed to centralised negotiations. Earlier this year coal producers said they prefer a decentralised negotiation system, this was rejected by labour unions. Earlier this year various partners reached agreements on ways to improve collective bargaining and minimise strikes. Bowman’s employment practice hosted a seminar today to look at the aspects of these agreements. Bowman’s Khomotso Makapane spoke further about this topic with Joanne Joseph on eNCA Business Show.
