Labour - DOL to host Labour Imbizo for domestic workers

In today's show, we heard from Cebo Kutuka - Assistant Director of the Enforcement and Inspection Services for the Department of Labour to tell us about the outcome of last week’s agricultural blitz and the upcoming Labour Imbizo for domestic workers. The blitz forms part of the department’s national work plan which seeks to address inspections in high risk areas as labour inspectors embarked on a series of inspections to different farms around the province. Last week’s agriculture blitz in Citrusdal, Western Cape focused on checking compliance with Occupational Health and Safety conditions and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act. Meanwhile Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant is calling on all workers, work-seekers, unemployed and others to attend a Labour Imbizo that she will be hosting next week Saturday, 2nd of November at Mandela Park Stadium in Khayelitsha from 10:00AM focusing on domestic workers. The department hopes to share information with as many people as possible and therefore will be transporting a number of domestic workers from surrounding areas, such as Worcester, to attend also.
