About the Webinar

Grading – Are you paying wages according to the right grades?

SEIFSA has established a professional service to assist employers in the verification of employee job grades in terms of the Main Agreement.
It is imperative that employers ensure that the present job grades of their employers are correct.
This is practically important where companies operate under more than one schedule or division of the Main Agreement or have changed their activities since the original date of registration with the Bargaining Council.
Correct job grading at company level, either in terms of the five grade job structure or thirteen grade structure, is essential for sound labour relations.

The workshop will cover

  • A brief introduction of legislation concerning Bargaining Councils and collective bargaining
  • The Metal industry, the Main Agreement and the jurisdiction/scope of application of both in terms of technical operations.
  • SEIFSA and its operations, functions and purpose
  • The Metal Industries Collective Agreements, including the Main Agreement.
  • At the end of the workshop the participants will be given a practical exercise, where they will grade various technical/machining activities.
  • This will ensure that the contents of the workshop have been understood and can be applied at the company.
  • The presentation process and content will be subject to continuous change, adjustment and improvement as the company’s operations adjust over time.
  • The training should therefore be envisioned as an on-going process.

NB: It is advisable that delegates have some technical knowledge of their operations and machinery.
