COVID-19 TERS FUNDING APPLICATIONS
SUBMIT CLAIMS TO THE UIF
Dear Steel Industry employer
The MEIBC is currently still in negotiations with the Department of Employment and Labour (DEL) to conclude a memorandum of agreement (MOA) which will allow employers to process TERS funding applications through the MEIBC.
However, it has come to our attention that the MOA proposed by the DEL, to be signed by the Council, are prejudicial to employers in the sector as it does not provide for a set-off clause for advanced payments as the generic MOA does.
Therefore NEASA has indicated that, unless the MOA is amended accordingly, we cannot support the conclusion of such an agreement.
We will inform members should there be further developments in this regard.

We are all in this together.
