CCMA ‘must set up in townships’

Comment on this story

The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) should expand and put its offices in townships to make it more visible and accessible to ordinary workers, Lumka Yengeni, the chairwoman of the National Assembly’s labour committee, said yesterday. “The CCMA must take its services to the townships where they are most needed,” Yengeni said. “The people should not suffer the double burden of losing employment and be subjected to expensive travels to get help,” she added, as the CCMA appeared before the committee to brief MPs on its programmes and budgetary needs ahead of next week’s budget allocation process. – Staff Reporter
