Catra – strength in numbers
Running a business in South Africa has become a minefield over the last decade. New laws and by-laws, and how they should be implemented, bring about a general confusion in the workplace. As an employer you don’t always know where you stand as far as your workers are concerned.
Labour relations have become an increasingly specialised field that requires knowledge and dedication from the employer. It is thus in the best interest of every employer in South Africa to join an employer’s organisation. Without such expertise behind him, and employer could very well find himself on unfamiliar and dangerous territory, which could result in huge financial losses.

Why Catra?
In its capacity as one of the oldest and largest representative associations in South Africa, Catra makes representations on behalf of its members, bringing with it centuries of expertise and knowledge.

Catra is a registered employer’s association that cares for its members.
