BUILDING: BIBC Announces Builders' Leave Dates
Recent Western Cape Business News
The Building Industry Bargaining Council (Cape of Good Hope) has confirmed that the annual builders’ holidays for this year will run from close of business on 14 December 2012 and the industry re-opens Monday 14 January 2013.
The builders’ annual leave is traditionally 3 weeks and is legislated as part of the BIBC’s Collective Agreement. This year however the Council negotiated an additional unpaid leave day since the start of the working period would have fallen on a Friday if they had not done so.
The Building Industry shutdown period is determined by the Council not later than 30 June each year. An employee may agree with his/her employer to work during the annual leave period and shall be paid the basic wage paid for any time worked during such period, whilst security guards and other employees who work during the annual leave period shall, by agreement with their employers, be granted leave equal to the period worked during annual shutdown.
The Council has once again issued a reminder for persons wanting to build to ensure that the contractor is duly registered and compliant with the Building Industry Bargaining Council (Cape of Good Hope). T
