The Congress of South African Trade Unions has welcomed the judgement of the Supreme Court of Appeal in the case of CCMA v Law Society of the Northern Provinces.

The SCA upheld an appeal by the CCMA against a judgement of the North Gauteng High Court, which had ruled as unconstitutional the CCMA’s exclusion of lawyers from its proceedings, under its Sub-Rule 25.

Cosatu Spokesperson Patrick Craven said this judgement would have forced the CCMA to allow lawyers to appear in misconduct and incapacity dispute hearings, from which they are currently excluded.

Craven said COSATU agrees, and strongly urges the lawyers to accept this ruling and not appeal to the Constitutional Court, so that the CCMA can continue with its important work.
