The Department of Labour will tomorrow (November 24) host two separate public hearings designed to come with a solution on the violent strikes in the farming sector triggered off by the demand for higher wages.

The double-header on Saturday will kick-off at 10am with employers and another session at 13:00 is meant for employees at the local hall of Boston Area in KwaZulu-Natal. 

The national hearings, designed to quell the violent strikes in the farming sector kicked-off on Thursday in Worcester, Western Cape.

After a brief hiatus, the public hearings will resume again on December 6 at 10am in Makhado Municipal Showground in Limpopo for both employers and employees. On December 8 the hearings will be held at 10am for both employers and employees at Bothaville, at a venue still-to-be-confirmed in the Free State Province.

The hearings will then trek to Ottodsdal in the North West on December 9, to be held at 10am for both employers and employees, at a venue yet-to-be-confirmed.

On December 11 a joint public hearing for both employer and employees will be held at 18:00 at Keimoes City Hall in the Northern Cape. On December 12 another joint hearing for both employers and employees will be held in KwaMhlushwa, Mpumalanga Province at a venue yet-to-be-confirmed.

The hearings will conclude on December 13 at 18:00 in both Barkley East Town Hall in the Eastern Cape and at Bronkhorstspruit, respectively, at a yet-to-be confirmed venue in Gauteng.

Titus Mtsweni, acting director of labour standards, said input from the hearings would shape the nature and form of wages and other conditions of employment in the sector over the next 12 months.
