AGRI SA WELCOMES CLARIFICATION BY MINISTER OLIPHANT

Agri SA welcomes Minister Mildred Oliphant's clarification of the legal process that applies to the review of agriculture's sectoral determination, of which minimum wages are an important element. It was clear from the outset that 4 December 2012, put forward by certain individuals and groups for the completion of a review of the determination, was both illegal and unattainable. Her view that legal processes and time lines should be adhered to and that violence and criminal behaviour will not be tolerated, show leadership that should be welcomed, given prevailing circumstances. Agri SA will nevertheless participate with the necessary diligence and urgency in the review process by submitting appropriate inputs to the Employment Conditions Commission for consideration by the minister.

Agri SA verwelkom opklaring deur Minister Oliphant

Agri SA verwelkom Minister Mildred Oliphant se opklaring van die wetlike proses wat van toepassing is met die hersiening van landbou se sektorale vasstelling, waarvan minimum lone ‘n belangrike element is.  Dit was van meet af duidelik dat 4 Desember 2012, wat sekere individue en groeperinge voorgehou het vir die afhandeling van ‘n hersiening van die vasstelling, beide onwettig en onhaalbaar is.  Haar standpunt dat by wetlike prosesse en tydskale gehou moet word en dat geweld en misdadige optrede nie geduld sal word nie, toon leierskap wat in hierdie omstandighede verwelkom word.  Agri SA sal nogtans met die nodige erns en dringendheid aan die hersieningsproses deelneem deur toepaslike insette aan die Diensvoorwaardekommissie vir oorweging voor te lê, alvorens die minister ‘n besluit daaromtrent neem.
