Message from the President
On behalf of the Industrial Relations Association of South Africa, it gives me great pleasure to welcome all IRASA members.
We extend a warm welcome to new Corporate members who joined IRASA, namely CCMA, EDI Holdings, Public Service Commission and African Bank Limited and to some 10 new Individual members. We look forward to your association that will enhance the objectives of IRASA. We also encourage our existing members to persuade other counterparts in the IR fraternity to join the IRASA family so that we can build a viable network of the various role-players.
IRASA continues to face many new challenges in this year, namely implementing the new Constitution, the appointment of a new National Secretary that can take the organisation forward and implement our Strategic Plan, which key stakeholders have developed, offering value added events which will encourage debate and dialogue over pertinent issues affecting the labour market. I call upon all members to commit to the renewal of IRASA to achieve the following outcomes in the coming year:
- OUTCOME 1: An effective, efficient and accessible IR organisation that provides a platform for interaction and networking within the IR and related fields
- OUTCOME 2: A sustainable, efficient and independent organization that promotes basic rights and sound relations between labour market partners and the state (non-partisan)
- OUTCOME 3: Advocates/promote interacting stakeholders’ dialogue, debates, and transformation and best IR practices on a non-partisan basis
- OUTCOME 4: Advocates and promotes compliance with the legal framework governing industrial relations.
