Dear Steel Industry employers  

The Minister of Employment and Labour, on 28 October 2019, renewed the extension of the 2011 MEIBC Administration and Expenses agreement following a request from NUMSA in terms of the amended Labour Relations Act.

In terms of this Agreement NEASA members are now obligated, as of 28 October 2019, to deduct and pay over to the Council the following levies for each employee, to which the agreement is applicable, with the employer making an equal contribution:

  • Admin Levy: R1,72 per week or R7,45 per month in respect of scheduled employees; and
  • Dispute Levy: 62c per week or R2,68 per month in respect of all employees.

Employers who are currently paying the dispute levy at a rate of 74c per week or R3,22 per month, must consequently reduce this amount to the dispute levy as set out above (62c per week or R2,68 per month in respect of all employees).

Kind Regards
