Workers in South Africa’s home textiles sector will receive an average wage increase of 10 per cent beginning this month, as an agreement has been reached between the Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) representing workers and the employers represented by the South African Home Textiles Manufacturers Employers’ Organisation.

As per the agreement reached under the auspices of the National Textile Bargaining Council (NTBC), the actual increase for workers will vary between 7.25 per cent and 21 per cent.

A 13.5 per cent productivity bonus will also be added to the basic wage. The increases will be backdated from July 1, 2018, SACTWU said in a statement.

Approximately 6,600 workers from 127 factories spread across South Africa will benefit from the wage increase. (RKS)
