numsaBusiness Report writes that the sudden and unexpected death of National Union of Metalworker of SA (Numsa) chief negotiator Stephen Nhlapho could disrupt and delay negotiations taking place with several key sectors of the economy.  

These include separate negotiations currently taking place between Numsa and the Automobile Manufacturers Employers Organisation (Ameo), with the Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI) and with the New Tyre Manufacturing Employers’ Association.  The RMI has agreed to a request from the union to cancel a second CCMA mediation meeting scheduled for Tuesday.  The mediation meetings follow Numsa last month declaring a dispute in the retail motor industry negotiations.  Numsa said last week it had learned with shock and sorrow about the sudden and untimely passing of Nhlapho on 10 August “at the age of just 52”.
