What We Do

The National Bargaining Council for the Private Security Sector negotiates collective bargaining agreements, settles labor disputes, creates various schemes, and provides feedback on labour policies and legislation.

Employer Participation

If an employer’s CORE FUNCTION is specified in the scope of application of any negotiating council, the employer is legally compelled to register with that bargaining council. The employer must also follow the terms and circumstances outlined in the negotiating council’s collective bargaining agreement.

Benefits of a Bargaining Council

When it comes to dispute resolution, the commissioners that assist the negotiating council with disputes are experts in that particular industry and collective bargaining agreement. The commissioner will provide expert advice and support to businesses, trade unions, and employees regarding dispute resolution.
