Department embarks on information campaign

2017-11-08 06:01

The Department of Labour is to embark on a national information campaign to inform stakeholders of the amendments and other elements of the national agreement.

This follows cabinet approval of the National Minimum Wage Bill, Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and Labour Relations Amendment Bill on 1 November.

Information sessions will commence in Johannesburg on Thursday (09/11).

The first sessions target trade unions, while later sessions (from January 2018 and onwards) will focus on employers and other parties.

A key objective of the information sessions is to ensure that the national minimum wage and the labour market stability measures are communicated as widely as possible.
