At today’s Metal and Engineering Industries Bargaining Council Management Committee Meeting, it was agreed that the Main Agreement wages and conditions of employment negotiations will formally get underway on Thursday, 3rd and Friday, 4th June 2021.
It was also agreed that the negotiations will be facilitated by a CCMA Commissioner and that all Parties will use their best endeavours to conclude an agreement as soon as is practicably possible.
The current Main Agreement concluded between all the Trade Unions and the SEIFSA Affiliated Associations in 2020 remains in force and effect until the 30 June 2021.
The SEIFSA Council appointed Main Agreement Negotiating Team, having presented and been given a broad mandate to reach settlement, will now begin its work in earnest to ensure that everything reasonably possible is done to reach an agreement and deliver an agreement to the membership within the mandate agreed to by the Associations.
We will keep the membership informed as developments unfold every step of the way.
