RIGHT TO EXTERNAL REPRESENTATION AT RETRECHMENT CONSULTATIONS
In essence we are guided by Section 189(1)(d). The reality is that a representative can be anyone of your choosing, there is no law or rulings on the meaning of “their representatives nominated for that purpose”. The common practice is for attorneys to represent the employer clients and this has been accepted by the courts since the inception of the current Labour Relations Act.
“What is good for the goose is good for the gander” and therefore it is absolutely right and reasonable for employees to choose a representative of their choice.
