THREE NEW COLLECTIVE AGREEMENTS SIGNED IN THE ELRC (TWO OF WHICH NAPTOSA DID NOT SIGN)
The following collective agreements were recently concluded in the ELRC
- Collective Agreement 2 of 2018 - Re-appointment of educators after a break in service.
- Collective Agreement 3 of 2018 - Compulsory inquiries by arbitrators in cases of disciplinary action against educators charged with sexual misconduct in respect of learners.
- Collective Agreement 4 of 2018 - The appointment and conversion of temporary educators to posts on the educator establishment.
The grouping (ATU-CTU) that NAPTOSA is part of in the ELRC, only supported Collective Agreement 4 of 2018. The other two collective agreements were not supported, because it is believed that they both amount to a downward variation of existing rights of educators. In addition, there are many unanswered questions regarding agreement 3 of 2018.
