Who is the RMI?

With a membership of 7 500, the RMI provides a very effective collective voice that gives members considerable clout in negotiating better trading conditions. As the lead voice in the motor industry, the RMI is a member-driven organisation that constantly seeks solutions to concerns raised by members in the day-to-day running of their businesses. Members' needs are serviced through six regional offices, manned by 83 professional staff. In addition, the RMI is the major employer representative of the Motor Industry Bargaining Council, playing a significant role in labour negotiations as well as the industry's social benefit schemes, dispute resolution processes and exemption procedures.

Objectives of the RMI
  • To promote, protect and encourage the interests of members and the motoring public by setting and maintaining proper standards of service and ethical trading conditions in the industry.
  • Facilitates the settlement of labour disputes between members and their employees by conciliation/mediation/arbitration.
  • Regulates relations between members and their employees and/or trade unions and protects and furthers the interests of members in that regard.
  • Promotes, supports or opposes when necessary, any proposal, legislative or other measures affecting the interests of members.
  • Affiliated with, and participates in the affairs of other bodies sharing common interest with RMI members i.e. NAAMSA, NAACAM, SABS, DoT, Busa, Nedlac, SAPIA, DTI, etc.
  • To maintain high standards of business ethics and service delivery to the motoring public by members of the RMI, and where necessary provide upliftment programmes to improve the knowledge and professionalism of members.
