Botswana Reported To ILO In 2015

BOFEPUSU Labour Secretary Johnson Motshwarakgole, led the delegation to the ILO 2017
It has surfaced that BOFEPUSU and its trade Unions, the Botswana Teachers Union and BOSETU had long started the action to report Botswana to the International Labour Organisation as way back as 2015, when the two teachers unions presented their complaint letter for the Education International Conference in Canada that year.

BOFEPUSU would also file a complaint to the International Labour Standars Department on July, 2016(BOFEPUSU’s 2016 letter of complaint is reproduced on page 24)

In their letter seen by the Monitor  the BTU and Bosetu joint report raises alarm about  Botswana’s Trade Dispute Bill No.12 of 2015.

The report said, “The government of Botswana has moved to extend the cadres of employees that are categorized as essential service. This is the second attempt after they attempted to do so immediately after the 2011 Industrial Action in 2012. The courts of laws reversed the 2012 attempt after BOFEPUSU took the issue to court on account of non - consultation and usurping the powers of parliament by the Minister of Labor”

BOFEPUSU Embrace BFTU Intervention

In the joint letter by BTU and BOSETU, the  BOFEPUSU Unions  did not demonstrate any hostility to  rival federation, the

BFTU, and instead reported at the Canada conference that BFTU and BOFEPUSU had  forged a united front to lobby that the Trade Dispute Bill No.12 of 2015 should not be passed into law by parliament in its current form. The two federations are in particular against the Sections 46 & 47 of the bill, read the letter to the Education International Conference.

The bill had sought to  widen essesntial sevices to include  air traffic control services, Botswana vaccine laboratory services,  Bank of Botswana,  diamond sorting, cutting, and selling services,  electricity services,  fire services,  health services,  railways’ operational and maintenance services,  wayer services, vertirinary services in public service, teaching service, , government broadcasting services, immigration and customs services.

The bill had further sought to  ensure that  employees in essential services shall not  take part in a strike, and lockout.
