CCMA TO HOST NATIONAL USER FORUM ON MINING

The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) mission 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 and economic growth.

On Thursday, 22 June 2017, the CCMA will be hosting a National User Forum on Mining, focusing on the Gold and Platinum Sectors, with the purpose of engaging with relevant Users and stakeholders on challenges and other common issues of interest.

According to CCMA Director, Mr Cameron Morajane, the importance of hosting such engagements lie in the fact that the labour market, in its very nature, is constituted by multiple stakeholders, with its stability reliant on effective social partnerships, built and maintained through effective social dialogue.
