Motor – Workers win backpay

New Vanderbijlpark local organiser, Billy Msimanga, won backpay for 15 petrol attendants because their employer had not been paying extra for Sunday work. The highest payout received by one worker was more than R1 600. The employer’s consultant claimed that an employee had to work for 45 hours before they qualify for overtime.However according to Clause 21 of the Motor Agreement that deals with Sunday work:
any general worker, forecourt attendant or employee in a vulcanising establishment must be paid not less than one and one third of his ordinary hourly wage for a normal shift
if he works overtime on a Sunday during a normal shift, he must be paid double his ordinary hourly wage for each hour or part of an hour thereafter. “We are happy that this deliberate mistake was rectified by our union,” said shop steward Walter Maphahlele.Meanwhile Msimanga also suspects that most service stations are not complying with clause 19 4 (a) (ii) of the motor main agreement. This says that workers working overtime between 23h00 and 6h00 must be paid double time. Mirriam Makhalamele

Keep labour brokers on their toesNumsa’s Gauteng motor regional organiser, Elias Kubeka reports that some labour brokers are giving the Bargaining Council a hard time and are not paying union or provident fund deductions from workers across to the Council.If you want to check that your employer is paying your deductions to the Bargaining Council, phone the regional office of the Motor Bargaining Council and ask to speak to an agent. Ask them to check:
If your company is registered with the bargaining council?
Is your company paying your deductions to the bargaining council?If they cannot find your details on their system, ask them to send an inspector to inspect and give them the physical address of your workplace.Be ready with:
your ID number
the name of the labour broker that employs you
the name of the workplace where you are working

What should they be deducting from your wages:

Council levy



1% of your wages (eg if you earn R260 per week, your deductions for Numsa should be R2,60 per week)


0,5% of your wages (eg if you earn R260 per week, your deductions for UIF should be R1,30 per week)
