Agreement Between Numsa And MibcoHungcp
The march will take place on Monday, November 16 at 9 a.m. We call on all workers in the security sector to support the march in their numbers. The collective agreement is a first for the sector and we must not allow a group of greedy selfish employers to seize the benefits for which generations of workers have fought. Hlubi-Majola said RMI, which represents about 40 percent of the auto industry, failed to comply with the 8% wage agreement reached in January 2019. The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) condemns Mafoko Security for refusing to implement the increase that was provided last year during wage negotiations in the security sector. Mafoko, along with 35 employers who are backwards and careless, has launched an application from the labour court to invalidate the collective agreement that was filed at the National Bar… Last year, the Private Security Sector Council won. Numsa requested that the Council meet to reconstitute itself, ratify the collective agreement signed by the RMI – whether accepted or rejected – and that RMI cease to interfere in the process of appointing the Secretary General of the Council. The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) will participate in a march against employers in the security sector. NUMSA will walk side by side with other security unions, including DETAWU and SATAWU. Our members are angry at the protests because 23 security companies, led by Mafoko Security, are challenging the collective agreement. The National Security Sector Negotiation Council has been signed.
They went to the labour court to declare the collective agreement illegal following a collective agreement reached last year. In November 2019, the Council concluded a collective wage agreement, which was promulgated by the Minister of Employment and Labour in February 2020 for wage increases and other benefits, including medical assistance to workers in the security sector, a first for the sector. But these backward employers, led by Mafoko Security, have refused to grant wage increases to workers since February this year. They are not at all interested in the suffering of employees during a global pandemic. They get richer while workers suffer. These workers had not received a pay increase since August 2016, when the previous collective agreement was signed. Since then, a rise in fuel prices of almost 30% and the resulting rise in the prices of other raw materials have reduced the purchasing power of their wages. For other workers in the automotive industry, their wages will increase by 6% this year and by 5.5% per year over the next two years of agreements.
Unlike component manufacturers, wage increases for other subsectors will be based on the minimum wage. He stated that this had resulted in Mibco not being able to conclude the formalities related to the ratification of the collective agreement. The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) has signed a three-year agreement with the Motor Industries Bargaining Council (MIBCO). “RMI is in compliance with the agreement reached in January 2020 and will ask its members to implement it immediately as soon as it is ratified by Mibco and published by the Ministry of Labour in the Government Scoreboard,” Schoeman said.
