The Department of Labour will this week host last two worker engagement/briefing sessions on the implementation of the national minimum wage (NMW) and amendments to labour legislation in the Northern Cape.

The worker briefing sessions are part of the national roadshows that started last year to engage workers on the implementation of NMW. The briefing sessions are also intended to educate the shop stewards and union representatives on the implications of proposed amendments to the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), the Labour Relations Act (LRA), the coming into effect of the Accord on Collective Bargaining and Industrial Action and the Code of Good Practice on Collective Bargaining, Industrial Action and Picketing.

The initial briefing session on Thursday will be held at the River Manor: Belurana at Cnr Bult & Coetzee Street in Upington. The second briefing session will be held on Friday at the Horseshoe Inn & Airport Hotel, Memorial Road in Kimberley.

The worker engagement/briefing sessions started on 9 November 2017 in Johannesburg. Further briefing sessions were held in  Pretoria, Cape Town, George, Pietermaritzburg, Richards Bay, Durban, Tzaneen, Polokwane, Mbombela, Emalahleni, Klerksdorp, Rustenburg, Bloemfontein, Welkom, Mthatha, East London and Port Elizabeth.

The National Minimum Wage is set for implementation from 1 May 2018. The agreed national minimum wage at NEDLAC is pegged at R20 an hour for major sectors, with the exception of sectors such as farm workers, domestic workers and expanded public works programme workers.

The briefing sessions on NMW and amendments to labour laws are held from 10:00-13:00.
