The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) Body has accredited the National Bargaining Council for the Road Freight and Logistics Industry (NBCRFLI) to conduct conciliations and arbitrations, including pre-dismissal arbitrations, from 1 June 2013 to 29 February 2016.
This decision was taken following the high quality of dispute resolution services provided by the NBCRFLI. The Council works in close co-operation with the CCMA to deliver this service to the industry.
“We are extremely proud to have received this prestigious accreditation,’ says Tersia StrÃ¶h, Acting CEO of the NBCRFLI. “It goes a long way to confirm that we offer an outstanding disputes resolution service that is in line with the CCMA’s requirements to all stakeholders within the road freight and logistics industry.’
“We wish to express our appreciation for the quality of dispute resolution services as rendered under the auspices of the NBCRFLI,’ says Eleanor Hambidge of the Statutory Bodies Liaison within the CCMA.
“We also wish to express our gratitude for the manner in which this Council has cooperated with the CCMA in its drive to enhance the quality of dispute resolution under the auspices of councils.’
One of the main functions of the NBCRFLI is to resolve disputes within the road freight and logistics industry, as per its mandate to manage the conditions of employment between industry employers and employees.
“As an impartial body, the Council is in the perfect position to resolve disputes within the road freight and logistics industry, which ultimately contributes to labour harmony,’ says Ezra Bulose, Dispute Resolution Manager of the NBCRFLI.
“We bring further value to the industry by offering our dispute resolution services to non-parties within the industry, even though we are not required by law to do so. The Council receives a subsidy for every closed case from the CCMA, which encourages commissioners to settle cases quicker.’
