Wed, 02 Nov 2011 09:12
The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) has reported a 25 percent increase in the case load over the past five years, with the current load sitting at 154, 279 as at 31 March 2011. CCMA director Nerine Kahn told the Parliamentary Committee on Labour in Cape town today during the presentation of the organisations annual report.
The CCMA said the rise in the volume of the was not necessarily a reflection that the South African labour market regime was not adversarial or antagonistic.
Khan said: The rise in the workload tells us that there is a lot at stake in the economy, and this places the services of the CCMA at high demand. She said the rise in case load was also a reflection of or a barometer over what was happening in the economy. Khan said a wave of wobbles in the economy trigger a wave of case loads.
Although the CCMA posted an unqualified audit in the 2010/11 financial, the director lamented the budgetary constraints faced by the organisation saying these posed a challenge in the work of the dispute resolution organisation. She said despite the problem faced, CCMA would pursue its programme of becoming a premier dispute resolution body.
CCMA is a statutory body reporting to the Department of Labour. Boasting an infrastructure that include 12 regional offices and six satellite offices, CCMA plans next year to expand its services using the infrastructure of the Department of Labour to open new offices.
The overall objective is to leave no stone unturned in pursuing the quest for business health and job security.
