South Africa has seen massive job cuts last year and the trend seems to be continuing with companies like Telkom, Samancor Chrome, and Glencore serving retrenchment notices in the new year.
A judgment from the Constitutional court states if you are a minority union, you could be excluded from negotiating a retrenchment settlement.
The Court dismissed an appeal against a judgment handed down by the Labour Appeal Court allowing for a majority union to finalize retrenchment agreements with employers.
The agreement will be binding to everyone, even if minority unions and their members haven’t been consulted.
Labour Lawyer, Jonathan Goldberg from Global Business Solutions, explained the rationale behind the judgment is based on the principle of majoritarianism.
Goldberg said should individuals have reason to bring a case against their employer, they would still have the right to do so.
Judgment: The hierarchy during the retrenchment consultation process set out in section 189(1) of the Labour Relations Act does not limit the constitutional right to fair labour practices and is therefore constitutionally valid. (AMCU v Royal Bafokeng Platinum Limited) pic.twitter.com/WrWHiw8Spq
