Transport Sector to meet Department of Labour and CEE on the implementation of employment equity (EE)

  

The Transport Sector is to meet the Department of Labour and the Commission for Employment Equity (CEE) on Thursday (18 August) to discuss transformation in the sector.

 

The meeting is part of an engagement initiated by the department and CEE following the launch of the 16th CEE Annual Report in which Labour Minister, Mildred Oliphant promised that the Commission will embark on engagements with business leaders of the various sectors following a lack of transformation of workplaces in which Africans are still confined to the lower rungs compared to Whites who are dominating the top ladder.

 

The aim of the sectoral engagements is to consult business leaders or their representatives (managers, human resource officers, and EE officers among others) on employment equity issues. The CEE is interested in establishing challenges that employers face in employment equity implementation and help devise strategies so as to overcome them.

 

The Transport Sector engagement with the Department of Labour and CEE will be held at Birchwood Conference Centre in Boksburg. The meeting will start at 09:00am.

 

The Commission for Employment Equity is a statutory body established in terms of section 28 of the Employment Equity Act. Its role is to advise Labour Minister on any matter concerning the Act, including policy and matters pertaining to the implementation of the EE Act.

 

 

The on-going series of engagements started on 23 June 2016 with the Retail & Motor sector. EE engagements have since been held with the Retail and Motor Sector; Manufacturing Sector; Finance Sector; Catering & Accommodation; and Construction Sector.

 

Four more engagements are still to be held with Educational Institutions, National Skills Authority, & Department of Higher Education (25 August: Birchwood); Mining & Quarrying; Wholesale Sector (Cape Town); and Local Government.

 

All engagements include Sector Education & Training Authority (SETA) and trade unions operating in that sector.

 

Media is invited to the engagement sessions.
