Welcome to the second issue of the PSCBC News-letter for 2017. It is a pub-lication that highlights important information relevant to the PSCBC throughout the year.
In this edition we have included the following events; SOD turning ceremony, PSCBC AGM and the NEHAWU 11th National Congress.
The National Child Protection Week (CPW) commences annually from the 28th of May to the 4th of June to raise awareness for the rights of children enshrined in the Children's Act of 2005. This programme has a special focus on issues facing South Africans under the age of 18.
The Department of Social Development has launched this year’s National Child protection week under the theme “Lets us all Protect Children to Move South Africa Forward”. The Department's campaign will seek to raise awareness and educate society about the rights of children.
The National Education Health Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) will be engaged on a four days national congress starting from the 26 – 29 June 2017 at Birchwood Hotel Conference Centre, Boksburg. This is their 11th National Congress. The congress is hosted under the theme “Strengthen workplace organisation, deepen class consciousness and advance internationalism”.
The national congress is the highest decision-making body of the union and has powers to adopt new policies, resolutions and also elect new National Office Bearers [NOBs]. The congress is attended by delegates drawn from all structures of the national union and delegates will receive progress reports on the implementation of the 10th national congress resolutions held in June 2013. At the end, the congress will be expected to map a way forward for the next four (4) years.
The Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) wishes NEHAWU and its members all the best as they begin with their National Congress. We hope that the outcomes of the congress will be beneficial to the labour environment and the upcoming negotiations.
The Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC), notes with discontent the escalation in acts of violence and abuse of women. We specifically make reference to the crimes that have taken place over the past few days where a 22 year old pregnant women was gang-raped in the Johannesburg inner city and three Soweto women were murdered after apparently being raped.
