SACTWU finishes second round of wage negotiations

08
Jun '12
The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers' Union (SACTWU) conclude its second rounds of 2012 wage negotiations, in the various clothing, textile, leather and related sectors, over the period from 9 May to 30 May 2012.

During the first rounds (which were conducted over the period 18 April to the first week of May 2012), employers had tabled wage offers ranging between 2.5% and 6%, but with no offer from clothing industry employers.

During the recently concluded second rounds of negotiations, all employers (except some employer associations in the clothing industry) have improved their wage increase offers from the previous round. The revised and formally tabled wage increase offers now range between 4% and 7.5%.

Regrettably, there is still no wage increase offer from clothing industry employers belonging to the Apparel Manufacturers Association (AMSA). However, clothing employers who are members of the Coastal Clothing Manufacturers' Association (CCMA) have now tabled a first wage increase offer equating to 3.7% of the non-metro area minimum wage of a qualified machinist.

The third rounds of negotiations are scheduled to take place until the end of June, with some 3rd rounds having already commenced.

SACTWU is determined to fight for a decent wage increase for our members, this year.
