• 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

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

New textile sector wage proposal

Sapa

Johannesburg - A new pay offer from employers in the cotton textile sector is being considered by members of the SA Clothing and Textile Workers' Union (Sactwu).

"We are recommending the settlement to our members," Sactwu general secretary Andre Kriel said in a statement on Thursday.

"It involves a 6.75% wage increase, backdated to 1 July this year."

The agreement also provided for the introduction of a service allowance.

Sactwu declared a wage dispute with cotton textile sector employers in June. Workers wanted a 10.5% wage increase while employers initially offered a 2.5% hike.

This affected about 5000 textile workers employed in 52 factories nationally.
