Johannesburg - A wage agreement was reached between the SABC and two unions representing its employees on Thursday, the public broadcaster said.

The agreement with the Broadcasting, Electronic Media and Allied Workers' Union (BEMAWU) and the Communications Workers' Union (CWU) was for the 2012/13 financial year, spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said in a statement.

"All parties have agreed that BEMAWU, CWU members and non-unionised staff members in the bargaining unit will receive a 9.5% increase in basic salary, back-dated to April 1, 2012," he said.

"The parties have further agreed to form multiple joint task teams, no later than 60 days from the signing of the collective agreement, which will deal with employee policy-related matters."

The back-dated payments would be implemented on June 22, said Kganyago
