Molefe said that he had extended an olive branch to the union after flagging issues of the union’s non-compliance with its constitution in August 2018. “Having considered further representations by Amcu, which include supporting documents, the registrar has taken a decision not to continue with the deregistration of Amcu,” said Molefe.
He said that the union had met with the department to make further submissions in preparation for its national congress this month.
In April Molefe issued a notice of intention to deregister Amcu, giving the union 60 days to give reasons why it should not be cancelled as a trade union.
At the time Molefe said that Amcu had ceased to function in terms of its constitution and was not a genuine trade union as envisaged in the Labour Relations Act.
