Introduction – National President – Shamima Gaibie

The last couple of months have been both busy and developmental. First, the Rules Board was constituted and began its work in earnest by considering draft rules for the Labour Court which had largely been prepared by the judges of that court. In light of the fact that no new rules had been gazetted for the Labour Court for some 17 years, this was a momentous development. Both Anton Myburgh SC and I were appointed as members of the Rules Board. After much discussion, the rules for the labour court were developed into a final draft, and the content thereof was presented to our members for discussion at seminars held in each chapter over May and June 2018.
