The Institute of Plumbing South Africa was established in 1989 by plumbers. Today the Institute of Plumbing has evolved as the only plumbing body that has become the recognised voice of the South African Plumbing industry.

The Institute provides a platform so as to advise on the practice and principles of the plumbing industry. The Institute regularly consults and liaises with the plumbing industry, governmental and regulatory bodies for the discussion of matters affecting the plumbing industry.

The Department of Labour is winding off a public consultation process with the stakeholders in the Private Security sector with a view to amend the current prescribed minimum wages and conditions of employment for the Private Security Sector.

The last in a series of public hearings with the Private Security sector will be held on Monday (17 September) at the Department of Labour offices at Laboria House at Corner of Compound & Pniel Streets in Kimberley, Northern Cape.

Although the sector recently registered Bargaining Council, they have not concluded a collective agreement hence the current sectoral determination will still be enforced. The current prescribed minimum wages in the sector expired on the 31 August 2018.

The Employment Conditions Commission (ECC), a body that advices Labour Minister on minimum wages and conditions of employment of vulnerable workers – has taken a decision to conduct public hearings in all the provinces in order to give employers and employees an opportunity to make their inputs.

The department started with its public hearings on 10 September in Rustenburg, Polokwane and Pretoria. This was followed by hearings on 12 September in Durban and Cape Town. On 14 September consultation hearings were held in Nelspruit, Bloemfontein and East London.
