It is an immense pleasure in introducing the National Bargaining Council for the Private Security Sector (“NBCPSS”).The long awaited NBCPSS was registered by the Department of Labour on 21 June 2018 and resulted in the adoption of its Constitution, with reference number LR2/6/6/164. The registration of the NBCPSS formally allowed all relevant stakeholders, labour and employer organisations to commence with the mammoth task to regulate the terms and conditions of employees, obligations of employers and to ensure much needed compliance regulations within the sector.
The NBCPSS currently has 21 founding parties, including Organised Labour and Employer Organisations.
Organized Labour and Employer Organisations confirmed a Protocol Agreement under which terms negotiations were concluded to determine the Main Collective Agreement under the auspices of the NBCPSS. The Main Collective Agreement is currently in the process to be promulgated.
The Levy Agreement regulating employers and employee’s contribution to the NBCPSS were promulgated (Government Notice No. 51) which is binding on parties in terms of section 32 of the Labour Relations Act and extended to non-parties by the Honorable Minister of Labour on 29 January 2020. The Levy Agreement as published determine contribution from employee and employer to the NBCPSS and to commence on 1 March 2020.
The NBCPSS is now more than ever excited about the implementation of the Levy Agreement and the Main Collective Agreement which provide the road ahead to ensure compliance, better conditions and regulating the sector.
Christiaan Oelofse has been appointed as Acting General Secretary of the NBCPSS as well his executive secretary, Chantel van Coller and wish to invite you to unite with us to create and launch the much needed NBCPSS.
