2. Vision

2.3 Labour Undertakings (to achieve this vision)



2.3.1 Encourage trade union controlled pension funds, where trade unions have significant influence, and trade union investment companies to make investments in the sector to help achieve the ownership targets.


2.3.2 Encourage employers to first look towards their own employees when considering options for achieving black equity participation.


2.3.4 Investigate opportunities to establish collective investment vehicles (including employee share ownership schemes) that will make investments in the sector. These investment vehicles must ensure the empowerment of workers to develop the skills required to own and manage companies in the industry. These initiatives need to be aligned to the tripartite report published in September 2003 and should be utilised in this regard.


2.3.5 Ensure that workers are empowered through skills development and create opportunities to deploy them into management positions.


2.3.6 Mobilise members to ensure compliance with existing legislation e.g. the Employment Equity (EE), Skills Development (SD), Labour Relations and Basic Conditions of Employment Acts. Non-complying companies must be reported to the Transport Sector B-BBEE Forum/Council to take further action by inspecting the causes for non‑compliance and reviewing performance targets as necessary.


2.3.7 Mobilise members to monitor the performance of their employers in implementing the Growth and Development Summit (GDS) agreement on promoting local content and/or procurement and supporting the Proudly South African campaign.


2.3.8 Monitor the impact of procurement/outsourcing on job creation and report findings to the Transport Sector BEE Forum/Council.
