SACTWU issues strike notice in cotton sector
25
Jul '14
The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has on Monday issued a strike notice to cotton sector employers after wage negotiations for the sector failed to yield a settlement.
 
The strike notice has been issued and the strike has commenced at 06h00 on 24 July 2014.
 
The issue in dispute is the employers’ final wage package increase offer of 7.75%. Our members are demanding a 10% wage increase. The strike is protected (legal) in terms of the provisions of the Labour Relations Act.
 
Wage increases were due on 1 July. Approximately 3000 cotton sector textile workers are currently on strike nationally.
