The establishment of the ELRC in 1994 at its founding meeting in Pretoria was a significant milestone for labour relations and education in South Africa. The ELRC has over the years succeeded in signing collective agreements that directly benefit educators in classrooms.

The Council serves educators in the public education sector, specifically those employed in terms of the Employment of Educators Act 76 of 1998.

The Council also serves the learners of this country by effectively resolving disputes in public education that involve the child as victim or witness and therefore comply with Section 28 of the Constitution of South Africa, which provides that the child’s rights is of paramount importance in every matter concerning a child.
