Regulating the Rights of Trade Unions

Trade unions in South Africa played a large role in enforcing racial disparity during apartheid and fostering reconciliation during Mandela’s administration. To better establish orderly collective bargaining and promote workplace democracy, the government passed The Labour Relations Act of 1995. The Basic Conditions of Employment Act of 1997 and Employment Equity Act of 1998 also addressed this gap.
