Collective bargaining is one of the key functions of SALGBC which can take place either at the central council, divisional or local level (in the LLF). The subject matter to be negotiated determines the appropriate level or forum for such negotiations. For example, salary, medical assistance and pension fund contributions can only be negotiated at the level of the Central Council. The division or LFF does not have the power to negotiate wages. National conditions of service are governed by the main collective agreement.

One of the essential tasks of SALGBC is the management of disputes referred to the Council. Disputes are handled at divisional level and/or within the Central Council. Disputes, such as unjustified dismissals, unfair labour practices, are referred to the competent Regional Secretary of the Division and to the competent regional offices.
As regards the interpretation or application of a collective agreement concluded at the level of the Central Council, it must be referred to the Secretary-General. Once the dispute has been presented, conciliation is provided for within 30 days, with the parties endeavouring to settle the dispute between them before an independent conciliator. If the matter is not resolved, a certificate is issued. The party may choose to assign the matter to arbitration; in such a case, the Council shall appoint an independent arbitrator to settle the dispute within sixty days. The transfer must be correct, without errors or errors, in order to avoid any delay.
