What is the history of Labour Protect
We have existed for over a decade! Labour Protect, was formed as an employee association/trade union in 2000 by attorney Roger Brown to assist employees restore the power balance in the workplace
Labour Protect formed alliances with a network throughout South Africa with some of the best labour lawyers who shared the same vision to assist the employee who did not have the deep pockets to take on the "gung-ho" employers;
During the early 2000s we established the national Labour Protect network of attorneys and labour law experts who became legionary for their expertise and successes in litigating and protecting the rights of those seeking help;
After contiuned growth, Labour Protect approached the Department of Labour to formally register as a trade union to better protect the individual and group rights of our Members. Currently Labour Protect operates as an (unregistered) trade union giving effect to the rights of all South Africans to join a trade union of their choice to protect their workplace rights.
Labour Protect is growing and flourishing under the continued leadership and guidance of its founder and current General Secretary, attorney Roger Brown.
