The Labour Relations Act Provides for the self-regulation of Industries through the medium of Bargaining Councils. MIBCO is a Bargaining Council as envisaged in the Act whose mission is to create and maintain industrial peace and stability in the Motor Industry.
The union was established and registered in 1934 – 77 (Seventy Seven) years ago. At the time the Head Office was at ; 51 Ashers Building, Fox Street Johannesburg. Tel 33-1598. The Founder and first General Secretary was Mr. Dick Knevitt.
In 1946 the Motor Transport Workers Union and the Motor Owners Association formed the first Industrial Council for the Motor Transport Undertaking (Goods), now known as the Bargaining Council for the Road Freight Industry. Motor Transport was instrumental in the Bargaining Council expanding Nationally.
During the period 1934 and until the early 1960s the Drivers in the Industry were mostly White Drivers with a few Indian and Coloured Drivers.
They were not registered under the Bargaining Council as Government prohibited Black, Coloured and Indians to belong to Unions.
Motor Transport Workers Union did not comply with this unfair practice and enrolled and represented these workers at Plant level.
The Union continued the struggle and had many battles with the Authorities and in particular the Police.
In May of 1992, The President of Motor Transport Workers Union, the Late Mr. Simon Seema, died in Police custody.
All of these hardships only strengthened and united the MTWU members to fight for The freedom and rights of all workers in South Africa.
Motorsport is controlled worldwide by two governing bodies: the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) responsible for all forms of automobile sport, and the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), responsible for all categories of motorcycling. The Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK), forms part of the FIA.
Both the FIA and FIM recognise only one National Federation in each country, with such Federation in turn being responsible for the control and administration of the sport in its own country. In South Africa, the FIA and FIM have transferred their sporting powers to Motorsport – South Africa (MSA) and all motorsporting events in the country are held in accordance with FIA and FIM Sporting Codes. South Africa is one of only a few countries responsible for the control of both car and motorcycle sporting events, with most other countries having separate governing bodies for the two disciplines.
There has never been any discrimination in motorsport, and before any club’s application for affiliation to MSA is considered, the club has to provide a copy of its Constitution to MSA, wherein it must be clearly stated that there will be no discrimination between race, colour, creed or religion within the club. The MSA Handbook further specifies this in the Introduction Section.
The control of motorsport in South Africa is divided into six regions, namely Northern Regions; Kwazulu Natal; Western Province; Eastern Province; Border and FS/Northern Cape

The growth and formation of the Mine Ventilation Society follows the fascinating history of the mining industry in South Africa.
A number of farsighted professionals recognised the need for a forum to discuss common ventilation problems, and in 1944 The Mine Ventilation Society of South Africa was formed. The growth and success of the Society has been due to the vision of these early members, many of whom were charismatic and colourful characters.
