DECISIONS TAKEN BY JAMAFO N E C
(National Executive Committee)
The national Executive Committee (NEC) is the second largest decision making body of JAMAFO in between National Congress empowered to deal with large scale management of the union and its members. During its sitting on 13th and 14th March 2015 in Johannesburg, the following resolutions were taken.
The year 2015 is going to be hectic for all JAMAFO members and their constitutional leadership structures. The NEC in their resolve undertook to grow this organisation to the next level and challenge all kinds of discrimination, exploitation, victimisation and suppression, which affect its members within all JAMAFO organised companies. It is therefore important that workers unite in their quest for Job security, better working conditions, decent life and improved living wages.

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING OUR STRENGTH
JAMAFO will start to engage in negotiations with Pick ‘n Pay on 14th April 2015 as part of the mandate given by its members. We do not expect to have a free flow during these first time negotiations with the company, it will be a mammoth task and huge challenge, but we have a team of capable men and women and we promise to make our intentions clear through demands which must become a reality. Our members need to rally in full support behind the negotiating team that has been elected by regions and help to create support structures with campaigns during these negotiations. Our strength and power during these testing times lies with our members and must be cemented.

The new thresholds which are now over 50% will enable the union to engage the company on full collective bargaining matters including better wages, benefits and improved working conditions.
