NGO Tackles Act for Being Unconstitutional

A full bench of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria reserves judgment in a constitutional challenge by the FMF to Section 32 of the Labour Relations Act.

A full bench of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has reserved judgment in a constitutional challenge by the Free Market Foundation (FMF) to Section 32 of the Labour Relations Act, which it blames for the country’s unemployment rate.

The FMF took Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant, the Congress of South African Trade Unions and 23 bargaining councils to court to have the section of the Act– which compels the labour minister to extend bargaining council agreements across entire industry sectors, subject to representivity conditions - declared unconstitutional.

The organisation argues that this means people who were not involved in negotiations before the bargaining councils have wage rates and terms and conditions imposed on them, irrespective of their circumstances.
