LABOUR BROKING DIVISION
THE LABOUR BROKING DIVISION
The Labour Broking Division (LBD) of the CEA (SA) was established in 1994 by members
who recognized the need to form a body in order to:
Have a platform where this sector of
industry has a voice.
Be part of a representative body which
will have credibility in the eyes of clients,
contractors, bargaining councils, trade
Improve the image of this sector of
industry, which admittedly at that time
was very poor and was perceived to
operate on the fringes of the law.
In the intervening years the founding members, comprising 8 labour brokers, have grown to over 80 members, which include many of the major brokers.
WHAT HAS THE LBD MANAGED TO ACHIEVE?
It provides a forum where members meet regularly to discuss matters of importance to the industry
It has compiled a Code of Ethics and members undertake to observe its contents.
A pro forma Service Level Agreement is available for use by members.
It has developed a set list of criteria for the accreditation of Labour Brokers in the industry to ensure compliance and self- regulation and is also working with the MEIBC to identify and assist non- compliant brokers.
It has been recognized by the Metal and Engineering Industries Bargaining Council (MEIBC) and the trade unions.
A pro forma Limited Duration Contract is available for use by members.
It keeps members abreast of the implications of labour and tax legislation and provides regular briefs on aspects of the legislation.
Working with SEIFSA (the Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa) and the CEA (SA) the LBD viewpoints are strongly articulated in negotiations with the trade unions and on various other industry platforms.
Members of the Division continue to meet on a monthly basis and membership is steadily growing.
