ISS Loses Bid to Stay NBCRFLI Enforcement Order

ISS have lost its bid to stop an order issued by the Labour Court on 24 November 2021 which stated that the company should comply with the NBCRFLI Main Collective Agreement.

The court order also barred ISS from advising any road freight companies that, if they engage its services in terms of its standard service level agreement that the employees will no longer be subjected to the provisions of the Main Collective Agreement.

SA Trucker presents the NBCRFLI update on the ISS/ISH matter:
