The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of South Africa (SEIFSA) is sad at the passing away of Mr Nelson Mandela, the Founding President of a democratic South Africa.
The icon of our times, Mr Mandela stood not only for reconciliation and peace, but also for all that is good in South Africa and the world. SEIFSA conveys its deepest condolences to the Mandela family and the people of South Africa.

SOUTH Africa is lucky to have Gill Marcus as the governor of the Reserve Bank. She is the best kind of patriot that South Africa could ask for: fiercely independent, passionate about and loyal to South Africa. Although she is a member of the ruling party and is appointed or deployed by the president, her primary loyalty is to the country and her primary concern is its welfare, as should be the case with somebody in her important position.
As a country, we are fortunate to have her where she is at the moment, just as we are fortunate to have Public Protector Thuli Madonsela where she is at the moment. These two women are, without doubt, the best — or among the very best — appointments made by President Jacob Zuma since he took office almost five years ago.

We would like to remind all members federated to Seifsa that the Collective Bargaining Levy (CBL) Agreement expired on 31 December 2012.
In view of the above, employers should not be making CBL deductions from scheduled employees who are not members of one of the six party trade unions.
Furthermore, employers who are non-members of the Associations federated to SEIFSA or non-members of Border Industrial Employers Association, FEOSA or NEASA are not required to continue contributions to the CBL as from the 1 January 2013.
