limusaBusiness Report writes that an arbitration hearing over an organisational rights dispute between the Liberated Metalworkers Union of SA (Limusa) and Toyota SA and the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) has been adjourned until next week.  

The CCMA hearing took place in Durban last week.  Limusa secretary Cedric Gina previously claimed the dispute had been going on for more than a year after several attempts by Toyota SA and Numsa to block Limusa from representing the interests of its members and denying workers their right of freedom of association.  Toyotas SA has claimed the number of Limusa members at the company fell “far short” of the applicable threshold for the union to be recognised by the motor manufacturer.
