Jun '12
The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has settled its 2012 wage negotiations for the General Goods & Handbags leather sector, late last week, at the third round of negotiations for this year.

The settlement was negotiated under the auspices of the National Bargaining Council for the Leather Manufacturing Industry of South Africa.

A 7.5% wage increase was agreed to, with the Association of South African Manufacturers of Luggage, Handbags & General Goods, which is the organization representing employers in the sector. The wage increase comes into effect nationally on 1 July 2012 and is effective for a one year period.

It covers 83 factories in the sector, employing approximately 2000 workers.
