Allocations from National Treasury will be enough for the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration to manage a 15% increase in complaints, Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant said.

The minister was responding in a written reply to a question from DA MP Michael Bagraim about whether the shortfall in funding of the CCMA last year had been addressed.

Oliphant said given the 15% increase in cases, the labour department had approached Treasury for additional funding.

For the next three years, the CCMA received a budget increase of R93m, she said.

For the 2019/20 fiscal year the CCMA will receive R25m, with R33m and R35m in subsequent years.

"This increase will capacitate it to deal with its challenges," she said.

Do you think it was a good idea for the government to approach the IMF for a $4.3 billion loan to fight Covid-19?
