On 27 April, the two trade unions and three employers` organisations had the opportunity to exchange negotiating proposals (or demands, as the trade unions point out). The RMI received the trade union demands and carried out important road shows in the various main regional centres during the first two weeks of May 2019. #MIBCO #CollectiveAdministrativeagreement #LabourNet #labourlaw #HRM #HRconsulting #HR #HumanResourceManagement #HumanResourcesconsulting #humanresources The parties to the negotiations are in a hurry to conclude and sign a new three-year MIBCO agreement by the end of June to ensure that the Minister of Labour has sufficient time to publish and extend the agreement to non-parties. The current main agreement, as well as the administrative agreement, expires on 31 August 2019. The RMI and its negotiating partners appreciate the urgency with which a new agreement must be reached. This will not be an easy task given the large number of union demands ranging from a flat-rate wage increase of 15% to a housing allowance of R 5,000 per month, a 20% allowance for all workers and a 20% increase in non-cash wage components, such as child care and claims allowances. Friday, October 26, 2018, the Minister stated that the collective agreement of the Auto Industry Council was binding not only on the parties that concluded the agreement on June 20, 2018, but also on other employers and workers in the sector (non-contracting parties to the agreement) effective on the second Monday following the publication of this notice (November 5, 2018) and until August 31, 2011. This means that employers and workers who were not part of MIBCO in the automotive industry are now regulated by the MIBCO collective management contract. This agreement regulates, among other things, dispute resolution procedures, minimum wages, wage deductions and wage exemptions.
If you are unsure if you are complying with this agreement, please contact your advisor or LabourNet Helpdesk for your support. The notice appears in the government bulletin board and can be viewed on this link. It should be noted that the main collective agreement MIBCO expired on August 31, 2019. In essence, this means that there is no agreement that regulates guaranteed annual increases, currently Government Gazette No. 10980: Notice of Extension AWPF and MIPF (August 2019) We have received many requests from our members who are concerned, as they have not received their annual increase as of September 1, 2019.
