Department of Labour host domestic workers Imbizo and officially opens a Labour Centre in the North West

by Gabriel Mothiba last modified 2014-09-26 12:01

The Department of Labour is to host a domestic workers Imbizo in which issues such as working conditions, minimum wages, registration for Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF), and extension of other social security matters will receive centre stage.

The domestic workers’ Imbizo will be held on Saturday. It will, on Friday (26 September 2014) be preceded by the official opening of the department’s Labour Centre, in a joint venture with the Department of Public Works in Rustenburg. The official opening ceremony of the Labour Centre will start at 9am.

The Department of Labour, led by Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant and her deputy Nkosi Phathekile Holomisa, is embarking on a consultative session with the domestic workers nationally. The consultation process coincide with the coming to an end of the three-year sectoral determination that prescribes domestic workers minimum wage and other conditions of employment.

In June the department embarked on national public hearings to canvass the domestic workers views on a new wage framework. The current sectoral determination comes to an end in November 2014.

The department has already held Izimbizo to interact with domestic workers in Khayelitsha, Western Cape; Durban, KwaZulu-Natal; Mdantsane, Eastern Cape, and recently visited Soweto, in Gauteng Province.

The North West Imbizo will take place on 27 September 2014, Ben Maree Hall at the Rustenburg Civic Centre at 10:00am. Rustenburg
