MEDIA BRIEFING ON THE STATUS OF LABOUR BROKERS AND THE NEDLAC NEGOTIATIONS ON LABOUR LAW AMENDMENTS – LABOUR Industrial Action MINISTER, MILDRED OLIPHANT 19 JULY 2011 With regards to the wave of industrial actions that arise from the annual round of collective bargaining I wish to reiterate my position that I urge parties to meaningfully engage and endeavour to reach agreement on wages and conditions of employment. I also wish to bring to their attention that these public sectors are critical to the economy of the country and, therefore, prolonging the strike is not in the public interest, hence the parties must talk and talk until an amicable agreement is reached. The parties should strive at all times to build on the strength of the country’s collective bargaining system. Where settlements are not achievable, workers of course have the right to strike and to protest peacefully as embodied in the Constitution of South Africa. I , however, want to again warn that violent behaviour during strikes, for example damage to property and intimidation, is totally not acceptable. It undermines the system of collective bargaining in this country and this violent behaviour serves only to bring legitimate negotiations into question. I, therefore, strongly appeal to trade unions and workers to conduct their strikes in a peaceful manner. I also wish to advise the parties to consider the services of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration when and where negotiators experience difficulties in resolving their disputes.
