SATWU finalizes wage rise with cotton textile firms

05
Jul '12
After two conciliation meetings, Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has reached a recommended settlement proposal to resolve a national wage dispute with employers in the Cotton Textile Sector.

It involves a 6.75% wage increase, backdated to 1st July this year. The agreement also provides for the introduction of service allowance to members. We are recommending settlement to our members.

Sactwu is the biggest union in the clothing, textile and leather industry in South Africa, with 99 000 members at the end of June 2010. This allows Sactwu to represent members more effectively. We negotiate wages for the vast majority of workers in the clothing, textile and leather industry, and our agreements cover more than 100 000 workers.
