• SA is being scammed!

    Former struggle heroes are now emptying state coffers to benefit foreign scammers, says Solly Moeng.

  • A burning issue

    The Knysna fires have shown that SA needs to be fire-aware and wary, 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.
