SalgaBusinessLive reports that the labour registrar has warned the SA Local Government Association (Salga) that its registration as an employer association could be revoked.  

In a warning published in last Friday’s Government Gazette, labour registrar Lehlohonolo Molefe said the association had breached certain sections of the Labour Relations Act (LRA) and had ceased to function in line with its own constitution.  The applicable LRA sections relate to disclosure and submission of financial records and audited financial statements to the registrar.  It is not known which sections of its constitution Salga failed to adhere to.  Salga is one of the biggest employer associations, whose members include all the country’s 257 local governments.  It represents municipalities in collective bargaining with municipal trade unions.  On Monday Salga said it had lodged an objection to the notice and had engaged with the labour registrar to resolve the matter.  The association told Business Day it had never breached sections 98 and 99 of the LRA as stated by the registrar.  It also said it was audited annually and had received five consecutive clean audits.
