NBCPSS was established and registered in terms of the provisions of the Labour Relations Act of South Africa. The primary aim and purpose of the NBCPSS is to regulate, maintain, and enforce the standard terms and conditions as set out in the Main Collective Agreement (“MCA”). The Council’s mandate is set out in Section 28 of the LRA of South Africa, with key activities and guidance outlined in Section 33A thereof.
