The Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs wishes to inform the public that the Trade Unions Pitso which was held on the July 7, 2015, could not go ahead as intended.
Participants indicated that they were given short notice to effectively engage in the discussions.
As such, they were not in a position to effectively participate in the Pitso, something that would have defeated the purpose of the Pitso.
As a Ministry responsible for labour relations and that values social dialogue, the Ministry considered the concerns of the participants and agreed to defer the Pitso to a later date. The Ministry will engage further with the stakeholders in this regard.
