 MEDIA STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DATE: FRIDAY, 27 JULY 2018

ATTENTION: ALL MEDIA HOUSES AND REPRESENTATIVES

SUBJECT:  PRIVATE SECURITY SECTOR WAGE NEGOTIATIONS SETTLED

The CCMA is proud to announce the settlement of the Private Security Wage negotiations under the auspices of the CCMA. The CCMA commends parties for once again reaching an agreement under the facilitation of Commissioner Meshack Ravuku. The wage agreement follows a successful verification exercise that was conducted in July 2017 that has also paved the way for the recently announced Registration of the Private Security Sector Bargaining Council. The fruits of the parties’ efforts following processes put in place by Commissioners Afzul Soobedar and Meshack Ravuku since 2007 will now ensure 12 years of industrial peace in the sector. This is truly a positive reflection of parties and their dedicated efforts to seeking solutions through collective bargaining.

CCMA Director, Cameron Sello Morajane, congratulates all parties on the settlement. “The private security sector is a crucial stakeholder in the South African public safety system, and this settlement represents commitment to labour peace and the safety and security of the citizens”, Morajane said. The CCMA remains committed to supporting the labour market in facilitating improved Collective Bargaining to promote orderly and healthy labour relations, as prioritised in the CCMA’s five (5) year Senz’umehluko Strategy.
