The Metal Industry Pension and Provident Fund Collective Agreements have been gazetted and extended to all non-party employers and employees.
The Dispute Resolution Agreement is with the Department of Labour and we anticipate its gazettal in the first quarter of 2019.
The Sick Pay Fund, Administration and Expenses Collective Agreement and Main Agreement were returned to the Council by the Department of Labour late in 2018, with certain “short comings” having been identified. Most of these points have been satisfactorily addressed and resolved with the Department of Labour via the Council. The remaining issues have been attended to by the Parties, will shortly be approved by the Council and all three Collective Agreements will be resubmitted to the Department of Labour by the end February/ early March 2019
