MEMORANDUM TO ASAQS MEMBERS REGARDING STATUS OF CSCC BBBEE ALIGNMENT NEGOTIATIONS

Dear ASAQS Professional Members and Firms,
 
Please find attached an urgent update regarding the BBBEE alignment negotiations of which the ASAQS as a stakeholder in the industry, is currently involved with.
 
The attached document outlines the final position which the “Emerging” sector has left on the negotiating table. At the combined meeting on 9 July 2015, a final position on the OWNERSHIP & SKILLS ELEMENT was tabled by the Emerging Sector, which is attached. This position was presented as a final offer and ultimatum by the Emerging team, who confirmed that if these items and weightings are rejected by the Established Sector, they will cease with the engagement and negotiation process. The DTI have advised that the failure of Sectors to conclude the alignment of their codes by the October deadline, could result in the repeal of the Sector specific codes. 
 
The situation described above, requires urgent feedback from members by Wednesday 15 July 2015. Although the Established negotiating team is committed to the speedy and successful conclusion of the new aligned Construction Sector Codes and have no intention of ceasing negotiations; the attached targets and terms cannot be agreed to without informed mandates from members to their member organisations. The response form on page 3 (attached) must be returned urgently the ASAQS so that the negotiating team can conclude this process.

Sincerely,

Larry Feinberg
Executive Director - ASAQS
