PRESENTATION TO LABOUR PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE ON TWO LABOUR AMENDMENT BILLS

Please find attached for your information the presentation that I gave to the Labour Portfolio Committee in Parliament on Tuesday 24th July in which I have highlighted the Industry's concerns regarding the Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and the Labour Relations Amendment Bill.

The presentation was well received and our recommendations were in line with those of the other organisations that made presentations on the day.  Oral representations continued yesterday and another batch will be heard on 31st July (including FEDUSA and COSATU). It is hoped that the Portfolio Committee will take the recommendations into account as the Bills in their current form will increase red tape and the cost of doing business, thereby damaging our competitiveness and will lead to job losses.
