Skills Crisis: Employers Take Action

Fed up with years of compromised governance, four qualified audits by the Auditor General, organisational instability and inefficiency, as well as inefficiencies relating to skills development, the majority of the employer groupings represented at CETA have suspended their participation.

This action is taken in an attempt to highlight the plight of the construction industry and persuade the Minister of Labour to place the CETA under administration. One of the employer groupings involved in the initiative is Master Builders South Africa which acts as the national umbrella bodies for eight Master Builders Associations including the KZN MBA.

It is hoped that once the CETA is place under administration, issues of governance and financial management will be sorted out to a point where the CETA can focus on the activity that it has been mandated to undertake, and that is to facilitate funding and other mechanisms for skills development in the construction industry.
