“This effectively prohibits “shop-floor negotiations” on issues submitted, negotiated or negotiated during the collective bargaining process. This provision applies only to parties to the agreement, which includes members of the ASSA. This is an important incentive to join SASA and, ideally, to become a member of gold. SASA will play a leading role in the creation of NBCPSS and will be at the forefront of all the changes that will result in the sector. NBCPSS` mission is to impose contributions on employers and workers in the sector, to ensure the application of compensation agreements, conditions of employment and worker benefits, and to deal with long-term labour-related disputes, currently in the area of the Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration Commission (CCMA). In a recent letter to the Committee on Police, Oversight and Work of Parliament, the Association of Private Security Owners of SA (Tapsosa) said it was concerned that private security sector unions had created a bargaining council with some employers and that collective agreements had been extended to non-members. The Ministry of Labour signed the tax agreement. This is the third stage of NbcPSS and a breakthrough in the existence of the Board, as it will allow the Board to set up its administration unimpeded. The agreements reached at the National Negotiation Forum were concluded as part of a framework negotiating agreement. With respect to this agreement, Mr. Botes asserts that no party or member of the contracting party can raise any issue submitted, dealt with or negotiated during a round of negotiations with another party or a member of that party. While NBCPSS is on a functioning bargaining council, it is important to respect sector clause 6: private sector, which is still in effect, until NBCPSS presents its own collective agreements on wages, working conditions and benefits. He stated that the association would pursue the matter in court and challenge the authority of the Minister of Labour in extending the bargaining council`s collective agreement to non-parties. In its current form, Sector 6 is still fully in force, Botes said, and will remain so until an NBCPSS collective agreement comes into force and renders it obsolete.
The review was conducted by DOL to allow (DOL) to extend any NBCPSS collective agreement to non-parties. The Council will soon conduct its internal review with a view to the allocation of seats between trade unions and employers` organisations. Mr. Bhembe stated that the bargaining council had been duly formed with seven unions and two employers` organizations, namely the SA National Security Employers` Association (Sansea) and the SA Security Association.
