SEIFSA signed an agreement with all the trade unions in our industries on Tuesday, 29 July 2014 on the terms and conditions of employment for a three-year period ending 30 June 2017.

This agreement follows a difficult negotiation and dispute-resolution process which comprised over 60 formal, informal and bilateral meetings, commencing on 26 March this year and ending when all the trade unions signed the Settlement Agreement on 29 July, following a four-week strike predominantly by members of Numsa.

MEIBC SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

By | Wage Negotiations 2014 | No Comments

Dear Members

The MEIBC Settlement Agreement: 1 July 2014 – 30 June 2017 was signed by all six party trade unions at a Main Agreement Negotiating Plenary meeting yesterday.

SEIFSA signed on behalf of the 24 federated Associations and confirmed that two Associations were still involved in internal mandating processes.

The Border Industries Employers Association (BIEA) representative was not present at the meeting. NEASA did not sign the Settlement Agreement.

The Bargaining Council will, in the next two weeks, convene a Management Committee Meeting to ratify the Settlement Agreement, confirm the position of the two outstanding SEIFSA Associations and adopt a resolution to have the Agreement extended to all non-party employers and employees in the industry. 

SEIFSA recommends that the increases be implemented from 1 July 2014 for all scheduled employees who worked during the strike and, in the case of those employees who participated in the strike, from the date of signature of the Settlement Agreement, namely 29 July and/or from the date of their return to work.

PRESS RELEASE – 2014/07/22: SEIFSA CLARIFIES ITS ACCEPTANCE OF THE MINISTER’S PROPOSAL

By | Wage Negotiations 2014 | No Comments

JOHANNESBURG, 22 JULY 2014 – The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa (SEIFSA) wishes to clarify that the employers’ acceptance of the Minister’s proposal is conditional upon a resolution of Section 37, and its acceptance by the unions no later than Friday (25 July).
Several social media reports have stated that SEIFSA has accepted the Minister’s proposal unconditionally – this is not true and it is clearly articulated in the press release (issued this morning) that employers have accepted the Minister’s proposal on wages but not on Section 37.

SEIFSA would like to thank everyone who has participated diligently in the daily survey to ascertain the level of absenteeism and misconduct experienced by companies during the ongoing strike.

Further to answering the survey, we have also been receiving recorded evidence (photographs and videos) of acts of violence and intimidation. We are keeping these on record as a clear indication of the acts perpetrated during the strike on employers and employees.
