Johannesburg - A wage agreement has been signed between the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) and the SA Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu), the union said on Monday.

"This is a major victory, particularly as the settlement addresses the needs of the most vulnerable workers," said spokesperson Reagoikanya Molopyane.

The agreement included an annual salary increase of 8% to all Prasa junior employees, backdated to the beginning of last month. In addition, the salaries of bargaining unit employees were increased to a minimum of R4 500 per month.

Coach cleaners, track helpers and general workers' salaries were doubled as a result of the agreement, to R4 500 per month.

"The collective bargaining team displayed a magnificent fighting spirit and determination to struggle for a decent living wage," Molopyane said.
