PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE

The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has declared a wage dispute in the wool and mohair textiles subsector  as employers have failed to table a decent wage offer.

The issue in dispute is the employers’ final wage offer of 6.5%. Our members are demanding a 9.5% wage increase.

Wage increases are due on 1 July 2014.

We have referred our formal dispute to the National Textile Bargaining Council and now await on the date for the conciliation meeting.
