Who is the Bargaining Council?


Bargaining Council is the product of negotiations between one or more employers' organisations on one hand, and one or more registered Trade Unions on the other side (refer to Section 27 of the Labour Relations Act).


The Bargaining Council is almost similar to the Department of Labour.  One of the differences between the two institutions is that the Bargaining Council focuses only in the Sector/Industry and the area for which it is registerd for, whereas the Department of Labour deals with all the sectors that are not covered by the Bargaining Council.


Benefits of the Bargaining Council:


  • Providing stability within the Industry

  • Providing a platform for change

  • Social benefits per Division

  • Advice & Coaching
