• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

Sapa

Johannesburg - A spokesperson for Sactwu says members at leather tanning companies will get a 7% pay rise next month.

Sactwu general secretary Andre Kriel said an agreement had been reached with the SA Tanning Employers' Association, concluding the year's round of negotiations.

"It [the agreement] will benefit about 3 800 employees in 36 tanning companies nationally... [with] a further 7% wage increase with effect from July 1 2014," Kriel said in a statement.

"In the event that inflation figures as at May 2014 exceed 8% or drop below 4%, the parties shall re-negotiate the wage increase applicable to the July 1 2014 component," he said.

Talks were mediated by the national bargaining council for the leather manufacturing industry and the agreement was signed in Port Elizabeth.
