Constitution of the Local Government Sector Education and Training Authority (LGSETA)


Annexure B : Formula for Proportional Allocation of Members


If organisations within a particular constituency, e.g. organised employers or registered trade unions (respectively) cannot reach agreement on the allocation of seats per organisation, then the principle of proportionality must apply. The formula below may be followed.


1. The formula is A  

                         R107 Local Government Schedule B

2.        A represents either—

2.1 the number of employees employed by the members of an employers' organisation listed in Annexure "E"; or
2.2 the number of members of a registered trade union listed in Annexure "E".


3. B represents either—
3.1 the total number of employees employed by all the employers who are members of all employers' organisations listed in Annexure "E"; or
3.2 the total membership of all the registered trade unions listed in Annexure "E".


4. C represents 10


5. D represents either—
5.1 The number of members which an employer's organisation may nominate to the Authority; or
5.2 The number of members which a registered trade union may nominate to the Authority.


Example: If there are only two registered trade unions, one with 600 members and the other with 1000 members, they would be represented as follows on the Authority


R107 Local Government Schedule B 1


The trade union with 600 members would nominate 4 members.


The trade union with 1000 members would nomination 6 members.
