As the provincial manager of the Eastern and part of the Southern Cape I have many roles. My most important function however is to ensure that our members receive the best assistance and representation in the disputes that they experience at the CCMA and Bargaining Councils in our region. Members come to us for guidance when they are in the midst of complex and stressful labour disputes. Our team always carries our members’ unique needs and risks into our negotiations and provide expert and thoughtful guidance throughout the processes.

I have a broad legal background with more than eight years of experience in litigation, labour law, arbitrations, case management, industrial relations, and dispute resolution. I regard myself as highly dynamic and motivated with excellent communication, liaison and interpersonal skills. Prior to my role as provincial manager, I was employed as a dispute resolution official by CEO. As a dispute resolution official, I successfully represented members in more than 1200 CCMA and Bargaining Council disputes.

These traits serve me well to ensure that our valued members always have a voice at the various dispute resolution forums in our region.
