Class 9: Routine occupations: ‘semi- and unskilled workers’

In this class, a basic labour contract prevails since there are no real issues relating to either monitoring or asset specificity. Work is paid for by either the piece or by time (hourly paid). Both the quality and quantity of work are easily monitored and employees are easily replaced without serious loss of productive value.

Typical occupations here include 9131 cleaners, 9313-30 labourers, 8321-4 drivers of motor vehicles, 8281-6 assemblers, 8271-9 machine operators, 9151 porters and messengers.
