Sactwu settles footwear wage dispute

Jun 18 2013 13:36
Durban - The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (Sactwu) has settled its wage dispute with employers in the footwear sector.

The Union declared the dispute in late May 2013. It was successfully conciliated on 13 June 2013, under the auspices of the National Bargaining Council for the Leather Manufacturing Industry.

A settlement was reached with the footwear employers, represented by the Southern African Footwear and Leather Industries Association (Saflia).

It provides for a 7.75% wage increase with effect from 1 July this year.

The settlement covers 182 footwear companies nationally, employing approximately 9 600 footwear workers.

The agreement will now be submitted to the Minister of Labour, for gazettal and extension to all non-party companies.

Earlier this month it was agreed by Sactwu and the SA Tanning Employers' Association that members at leather tanning companies will get a 7% pay rise next month.
