The provisions of an employment contract that provide for such a prohibited agreement are not valid.  The NBCRFLI consists of the Association of Road Freight Employers and a number of unions representing the interests of workers. NBCRFLI has entered into several agreements that engage its members. These agreements are: to get in touch with a designated agent, check the contact list on www.nbcrfli.org.za or contact your nearest NBCRFLI office. The contributions of employers and their workers, who are subject to minimum wages, are not changed. It remains at 0.4% per week of a worker`s normal weekly wage and a similar amount by an employer. An employment contract (whether concluded before or after the opening date of the collective agreement) must not allow for less favourable treatment than that provided for by the collective agreement or a waiver of the provisions of the collective agreement. If the parties fail to reach an agreement at the mediation level, the case is not resolved and the dispute can be referred to conciliation. This is why all employers in the sector must comply with this agreement as of that date. You can download the following chords by clicking on the corresponding PDFs below. Yes, from the date of proclamation, all employers in the industry are required to submit monthly online returns to www.nbcrflionline.org.za.
You MUST also submit your monthly returns for sick people, holidays, vacation bonuses, dues, union memberships and welfare funds on or before the 20th of the month. Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 (the LRA) provides that in the event of a conflict between the employment contract and the collective agreement, a collective agreement varies from one employment contract between the worker and the employer, both of which are bound by the collective agreement.  The main objective was to simplify the main collective agreement by paying particular attention to grammar, language, contradictions and other errors. The Council is governed by the Labour Relations Act 1995, which allows employers` and trade union organizations to create a bargaining council for an industry and territory. Through collective bargaining, trade unions and employers` organizations that are members of the Council are able to negotiate issues of mutual interest to the road freight and logistics industry. This approach allows for better regulation of industry-wide issues, thereby imposing minimum standards and conditions of employment in the road freight and logistics sectors, ultimately contributing to job stability. The Board also assists its members with the management of annual leave, sick leave, leave pay, and the provision of health, wellness and dispute resolution services. If an employment contract attempts to allow less favourable treatment than that prescribed by the collective agreement, or a waiver of the application of the provisions of the collective agreement may lead to the invalidation of the contract or the objection clauses. As a result, the employment relationship will be governed by NBCRFLI`s main collective agreement.
