RMI Newsflash: Free State Protest Action
Home - Members Members News Newsflash

The RMI received reports of communication being circulated advising of a ‘national shutdown’ in certain parts of the Free State on 1 July 2023. The purpose of the shutdown is to address substance abuse, corruption, human trafficking, counterfeit products and loss of jobs for
citizens, the removal of illegal immigrants, non-compliant foreign businesses and the increase in job skills, jobs and businesses.

The affected areas are Thaba Nchu, Bloemfontein (Mangaung), Soutpan and Botshabelo in the Free State.

According to the RMI’s sources, the planned protest action has not been approved by NEDLAC in terms of section 77 of the Labour Relations Act and is therefore deemed to be unprotected.

The RMI will inform members of any developments in this regard.

If you have any queries in this regard, please contact your local IR Specialist: IR Contacts – Retail Motor Industry Organisation (rmi.org.za).
