The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has settled its 2014 wage negotiations for the leather tanning sector. This follows on a two year agreement reached with the South African Tanning Employers Organisation (SATEO), last year.

The new increases for this year will come into effect on 1 July 2014, and will be equal to a 7% upwards adjustment on prescribed minimum wages for the sector. In addition, workers in the non-auto tanning section will receive an increase in their annual bonus, of an additional one day’s pay.

This agreement was reached under the auspices of the national bargaining council for the leather sector. Approximately 3100 workers employed in 32 tanning factories nationally will benefit from this wage improvement in conditions of employment.
