Following the identification of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, Hubei Province of Cina, Chinese authorities reported on the 17th January 2020 that the disease was caused by a virus which has not previously been identified in humans. This novel virus is called COVID-19. This is not the first time we have a coronavirus outbreak. In 2003, a new coronavirus emerged leading to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak. In 2012, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) was caused by a coronavirus associated with transmission from camels.
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover but it can be more severe for others.

The parties to the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) in 2009 entered into an agreement commonly referred to as “Birchwood 1”. This agreement in principle required parties to develop and/or strengthen collective bargaining as to underline the importance of the characteristics of a developmental state. Parties reconfirmed their support to the “Birchwood 1” agreement with the “Declaration of the Public Service Summit” signed in 2010. Both agreements required Council to call a summit on collective bargaining to strengthen the PSCBC in conducting a proper assessment and review of the current bargaining structures and develop new ones suitable for the contours of the public service while still jealously guarding centralised collective bargaining.
As part of giving effect to the collective agreements signed and reviewing of past performance and future ventures, the Council agreed to host a Collective Bargaining Indaba from 16-19 October 2018, Gallagher Estate, Midrand, Gauteng. The theme of the Indaba was:
Advancing and protecting workplace democratization through strengthening collective bargaining as to ensure economic development, social justice and labour peace within the public service
