During the investigation, the applicant trade unions argued, on behalf of the workers, that Article 197(5)(b)(ii) stated that the new employer, the City of Casu, was bound by the old collective agreement. Article 197(5)(a) and (b) stipulates that collective bargaining in the Disciplinary Code has been concluded and a collective agreement has been concluded on 1 February 2018. However, in 2012, the city informed the employees that, since they were all under the jurisdiction of the South African Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC), they were bound by the Council`s main collective agreement, which governs the working conditions of all employees. Therefore, the city believes that the old collective agreements should be replaced by the main collective agreement of the Collective Agreements Board. “A crucial element of this dispute is that the parties to the dispute are parties to SALGBC`s main contract and their members [the employees concerned] fall within the registered scope of SALGBC`s main contract. 1. SCOPE The terms of this Agreement shall be complied with by all employers and workers within the scope of SALGBC within the framework of local intergovernmental in the Republic of South Africa. The Tribunal found that the main objective of 197 was to protect workers from job losses and not to “immunize” old collective agreements. Thus, a new employer can amend an old collective agreement after the transfer through negotiation with the workers. 9.
