by lloyd last modified 2010-08-30 07:21

10. Establishment of coordinating and subsidiary workplace forums (section 82(2)(b))

Labour Relations Act (No. 66 of 1995 )
as amended by the
Amendment - Afrikaans Labour Relations Act 1998, Amendment - Labour Relations Act 1996, Amendment - Labour Relations Act 1998, Amendment - Labour Relations Act 2000, and  Amendment - Labour Relations Act 2002

Establishment of coordinating and subsidiary workplace forums (section 82(2)(b))

10. Establishment of coordinating and subsidiary workplace forums (section 82(2)(b))

(1)          Where an employer carries on or conducts two or more operations that are independent of each other by reason of their size, function or organisation, the constitution may provide for the establishment of a coordinating workplace forum with jurisdiction over those matters mentioned in sections 84 and 86 that affect the employees generally and for the establishment of a subsidiary workplace forum in each of the workplaces with jurisdiction over those matters that affect only the employees in that workplace.

 

(2)          Where the employer has a workplace that is geographically dispersed and there are matters that are of local interest rather than general interest, the constitution may establish a coordinating workplace forum with general jurisdiction and subsidiary workplace forums with local interest jurisdiction.

 

Example:

 

A bank with a head office may have many branches dispersed around the country.

 

If the branches are not regarded as separate workplaces, the bank may have one workplace forum for all its employees or the constitution may allow for the establishment of a coordinating workplace forum at head office level and in certain or all of the branches allow the establishment of subsidiary workplace forums that will deal with matters that affect only the employees in those branches.
