Public Notice

Dear Stakeholders,

CMAC is pleased to invite you to its short-term Course on “Collective Bargaining and Negotiation Skills”.

In the promotion of sound and harmonious Industrial Relations, Eswatini labour laws, in particular the Industrial Relations Act 2000 (as amended), makes provision for the formation of organized Employee/Employer structures, also referred to as workplace formations with the purpose of regulating the  employment relationship.

These workplace formations serve as a forum for Management and employees, through their representatives, to negotiate terms and conditions of employment for the employees and further provide a consultative forum for Management to convey information and obtain feedback on various proposed changes at the workplace. 

Our training methodology involves participatory activities including case studies, role-plays, workbook and plenary discussions used to encourage interactions among delegates.

At the end of the training, the delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance. The training programme comes with a training pack comprising the trainee’s module, the Combined Labour Legislation, a notepad and pen.
