MEDIA INVITATION

SUBJECT:  DIRECTORS NATIONAL USER FORUM ON THE SECURITY SECTOR

 

The Private Security Industry Regulation Authority (PSIRA), in its 2017/18 Annual Report, puts it forward that ‘It is generally accepted that the private security industry has become critical as a crime prevention asset and player in providing safety and security services in South Africa’. PSIRA also affirms that ‘The private security industry continues to follow international trends in its development and, like its overseas counterparts, has continued to experience extensive growth over the last three decades’, with PRISA’s registration records reflecting 2 365 782 Security Officers registered, with just over 498 435 of them being employed by just over 9 000 registered and active security businesses.

One of the CCMA’s objective is to promote social justice through advancing good practices at the workplace and transforming workplace relations in order to enhance the labour market to ensure stability.  One of the means of doing this is to facilitate social dialogue amongst labour market stakeholders on strategic labour market issues and encouraging thought leadership for foresight preparedness.

Given the heightened growth of the Security Sector and the many challenges confronting it, the Director of the CCMA, Cameron Morajane, will be hosting the Director’s National User Forum on the Security Sector to enable the CCMA to gain a better understanding of the complexities and challenges faced by CCMA Users and stakeholders in the Security Sector, and how the CCMA can better respond to these challenges as a dispute resolution institution.

Presentations by different stakeholders will be delivered, covering the following topics:

         I.            Challenges confronting the Security Sector: A regulator’s perspective

       II.            Complaints received regarding Security Sector and possible areas of collaboration between the South African Human Rights Commission and the CCMA

      III.            Enforcement and the Law and Government’s Programme of Action with respect to the Security Sector

     IV.            Collective Bargaining Trends, challenges, impact of the minimum wage and matters for consideration in the Security Sector

       V.            An overview of the Security Sector and trend analysis: CCMA perspective

     VI.            Operational challenges confronting the Security Sector and the envisaged role that the CCMA should Play: An organised Business and Labour perspective
