meibcBusiness Report writes that the National Union of Metalworkers SA (Numsa) has declared a dispute with employers over the extension of levy agreements to non-party members at the Metal and Engineering Industries Bargaining Council (MEIBC).  

The dispute was sparked by employers’ organisations, which include the National Employers’ Association of SA (Neasa) and the SA Engineers and Founders Association, refusing to agree to the extension of levy agreements to non-party members.  They lapsed on Monday.  This development has left MEIBC general secretary Thulani Mthiyane concerned that his office would now operate without 20% to 30% of its income.
