Public Health and Social Development Sectoral Bargaining Council
About Public Health and Social Development Sectoral Bargaining Council
The existence of the PHSDSBC (hereafter referred to as the Council) which was formerly known as the Public Health and Welfare Sectoral Bargaining Council up until the change of name in 2007 can be traced back to the Labour Relations Act (hereafter referred to as the LRA) Act no. 66 of 1995, as amended, Section 37, which states:
“The Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council may, in terms of its Constitution and by resolution designate a sector of the public service for the establishment of a Bargaining Council”.
Pursuant to the aforementioned section, the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) designated the Council as a bargaining council in 1999.
